Fresh new material for a daily prayer discipline Authorized for use by the General Convention of the Episcopal Church Available in English and Spanish (separate volumes) People in all kinds of religious traditions, including Judaism and Christianity, have been marking time with prayer for almost as long as we’ve divided the day into hours. “Praying the hours,” as it’s called, has always reminded us that God walks with us throughout each day; “praying the hours” is also a way that the community of faith comes together, whether we’re united all in one place or scattered like raindrops. In the Episcopal Church, the Book of Common Prayer offers beautiful services for morning, noon, evening, and nighttime in a section called “The Daily Office” (pp 35-146). Daily Prayer for All Seasons offers a variation on that theme, a shortened version, where a complete service covers one or two pages at most, thereby eliminating the need to shuffle prayer books and hymnals. Daily Prayer for All Seasons works for individuals, small groups, and/or congregations. This prayer book presents a variety of images of God, uses inclusive and expansive language for and about God, and presents a rich variety of language, including poetry, meditation, and prayers from the broader community of faith. For Episcopalians - and others - interested in the daily office and praying the hours.

You cannot make it without God’s mercy. Do we just need God’s grace in dark and shameful moments? Are prayers for mercy only for those times when we really mess up? Jonathan Parnell says we need God’s mercy all the time. In fact, contrary to many church cultures, Parnell shows that asking God for mercy should be as regular as asking God for our daily bread. There’s no doubt that David was in a terrible predicament when he first prayed the words of Psalm 51. It was a dark and shameful moment in the Bible, and one so dark and shameful it seldom feels relevant to us today. But David’s most desperate prayer is really a prayer for all of us—and not just for our worst moments, but for our every moment. In these pages, you'll discover: how to pray a daily, memorable prayer derived from Psalm 51 how to practice daily repentance and soul care how to pursue God and experience his joy in the Christian life This is God’s mercy, and it’s Mercy for Today.

Sacred Reading: The 2019 Guide to Daily Prayer provides a prayerful and intimate exploration of the daily gospel readings, illuminating each passage through a simple, six-step process that draws you into a personal encounter with Christ.

This inviting annual prayer book from the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network—an international ecclesial ministry served by the Jesuits—breaks open the daily gospel readings with a fresh take on the traditional spiritual devotion lectio divina (sacred reading) and incorporates the Pope’s monthly prayer intentions for groups across the globe. A straightforward yet deeply prayerful approach to the ancient practice of lectio divina will help you develop a sense of the universal Church in prayer for persecuted Christians, national leaders, the elderly, and those in need. With Sacred Reading, you will be guided to know God is present; read the gospel; notice what you think and feel; pray as you are led for yourself and others; listen to God; and ask him how to show you how to live each day.

The Presbyterian Supplemental Liturgical Resource (SLT) series includes liturgies that were used on a trial basis in preparation for the development of the Book of Common Worship. Though superseded by the Book of Common Worship, SLR resources remain valuable, both for the variety of liturgical texts they contain and for the commentary on the text, which contains rich historical, theological, and practical background.
