Reviews - What do customers think about Praying the Pattern?

Praying the Pattern is for spiritual experimenting...  Nov 30, 2005
It's about time we got seriously interesting when praying the Lord's prayer. It's all too often repeated word-for-word as a set prayer, which is a shame because it is a whole lot better prayed as a pattern -and arguably that was Jesus' intention. Using it as a kind of trellis or framework can let it blossom into our whole life. Making the change from thinking of it as a set prayer to using it as a living skeleton for the flesh of everyday prayer is perhaps made more difficult by us not having any 'handles' on how to do it. Well, that's where this book comes to the rescue. Here are creative ideas for individuals for prayer groups, retreats and worship: there are ways outlined for praying with the body, with organisers, scrapbooks, stones, cards, labyrinths, lifestyles and liturgies. And to help even more there is a website for further materials and methods and also the means to add your own ideas and comments. You can find it at on the [...]There's a few pages of new ideas that have been written up since the book was published as well as some more liturgies.

Books on the Lord's prayer tend to be one of two kinds. On the one hand there are scholarly books which go into the history, theology and literary things. On the other hand there are 'devotional' books with thoughts and meditations on the the prayer. There seem to be few books that take the insights about meanings and structure of the prayer and turn them into practical strategies for praying. Praying the Pattern fills the gap between noting that the 'Our Father' is supposed to be a framework for prayer and the usual practice of recitating the prayer while using other patterns to shape everyday prayer.
