Item description for Inviting God in: Scriptural Reflections and Prayers Throughout the Year by Joyce Rupp...
God is always there, always waiting for our invitation to come in. Yet sometimes we need help hearing the knock at the door, putting some time aside, or beginning the conversation. In this collection of scriptural reflections and prayers, Joyce Rupp offers us the encouragement we so often require to stop and pray. Her thoughtful, perceptive reflections on scripture guide us as we open our hearts and ponder the meaning of God's word in our lives. And her poetic personal prayers help us find words for the longings in our hearts.
Inviting God In is organized according to the seasons of the church year, from Advent and Christmas, to Lent and Easter, and on through the days of Ordinary Time and particular festivals. Each entry is just one page long, beginning with a verse from scripture followed by a reflection and a prayer. The book begins with an insightful reflection on prayer as "God's Gift to Us," reminding us of those basic truths about prayer that are sometimes easy to forget.
One of our best-loved spiritual writers, Joyce Rupp once again sets just the right tone to invite us to pray.

Reviews - What do customers think about Inviting God in: Scriptural Reflections and Prayers Throughout the Year?
Daily help May 28, 2008
Joyce Rupp is one after my own heart. Her daily devotionals on Bible verses are so helpful, and I'm looking forward to using the book throughout the year because it's divided into sections to correspond with the church year. Although she is a Roman Catholic nun, her writings are what I would call ecumenical, based upon the Bible.
Inviting God In Jun 20, 2007
I've just started using this book, and the reflections are very much to the point. Rupp's style of writing gives one much food for thought. It's simple, yet profound, brief (one page) but with enough wisdom to last and reflect on for the entire day. Each reflection really DOES invite God in!

Joyce Rupp continues to provide down to earth yet challenging spiritual nourishment to her readers. As with "May I Have This Dance", "Inviting God In" has excellent, brief readings for each season of the year. Our women's covenant group often uses her books for study and spiritual direction.
