Item description for Hear Our Prayer: A Collection of Classic Prayers by Hendrickson Publishers...
"In both prayer and praise, the distance between man and God can be bridged." ---from the Introduction
Hear Our Prayer invites the reader to take a new look at prayers Christians have prayed over the last two millennia. Sren Kierkegaard, Charles Wesley, the Book of Common Prayer, Eastern Orthodox prayers, Jewish prayers, Celtic prayers---all are found here, beautifully illustrated with evocative photographs of God's creation.
These classic examples of prayer and praise are drawn from across the millennia that have passed since God first gave us the gift of prayer. Use them to explore new ways to build "bridges to God"; to understand how prayer can be something that happens when the heart is in pilgrimage; or to explore some of the ways ordinary people have gained glimpses of heaven through prayer.
TOPICS INCLUDE * Seeking God * Praise * Thanksgiving * Confession * Petition * Intercession * Morning and Evening * The Church Year * Church Rites * Graces and Blessings
Arranged by topic and indexed by both author and first line, Hear Our Prayer is a resource for inspiration and a doorway to better understanding prayer. Lean on earlier travelers along the road of Christian faith and strengthen your own prayer life. Through their prayers, share their joys, sorrows, and insights into conversation with God. Explore, discover, and worship!
