Item description for Gentle Words in a Raging Storm: Prayers for All Occasions by Gary R. Weaver...

Overview
Gary Weaver says that "prayer is part poetry, part free-association, and part love letter to God. When spoken, it is the most intimate, sacred speech we utter. When written down, it becomes a diary of the heart." And that's a perfect description of this compelling collection of more than 160 prayers. Some are songs of celebration and joy that "dance before the Lord," while others are desperate pleas for clarity, direction, and meaning amidst loss, divorce, suffering, injustice, fear, and anger. But all of them bring the gentle words of thoughtful introspection and a sustained conversation with the Almighty to the raging storm of daily life with its overwhelming cacophony of motion, noise, and imagery. These prayers can be used in almost any setting from the sanctuary to the stadium, as well as in study groups, prayer circles, nursing homes, or for private meditation. If you're looking for a prayer resource that speaks clearly about the Christian faith while addressing serious human questions, concerns, doubts, and distress, Gentle Words In A Raging Stormis a first-rate compilation you'll find yourself returning to again and again. Themes include: * Personal prayers * Pastoral prayers * Prayers about the seasons of life * Prayers about suffering, dying, and grief * Prayers for the journey of faith * Prayers for special occasions

A One of a Kind Prayer Guide!  Jun 3, 2006
After reading Gary Weaver's "Gentle Words in a Raging Storm," I found it to be one of the most inclusive and well-worded colleciotns of prayers available. He has a unique gift of being able to express the heart's desires while others of us remain speechless. I have found this book ideal for public use and a source for my own personal consolation. This is a book people will find useful for a long time.

Supports all faith walks  Jun 1, 2006
I have moved from my orthodox Christian upbringing to more of an interfaith comtemplative approach to my spiritual path now, but Gary Weaver's book of prayers, GENTLE WORDS IN A RAGING STORM, still speaks deeply to me. His unfailing, faithful hope in the midst of the trials and troubles of this human life offers me support and a means of prayerful expression for my journey. The beauty and depth of feeling of his words offers delight to my soul.
Ann Ladd, psychotherapist
