A Prayer For Every Occasion Apr 10, 2007
Whether you've been asked to give an invocation at a special occasion or just need some help articulating your thoughts in prayer, this is the book for you. While many of the prayers are about expected topics such as sickness, loneliness and thanksgiving for the birth of a child, you'll also find prayers that celebrate the trivial, mundane and unexpected. Some of these include a laundry prayer, a blessing for one's house after an intrusion, an internet prayer, and a homework prayer. The book is divided pretty equally between laments and prayers of thanksgiving and each prayer is brief enough to be easily copied and taped to the bathroom mirror, dashboard or near the computer for easy access.
