Item description for Intercession: A Theological and Practical Guide by Ormonde Plater...
Intercession is an essential element of both public and private prayer. Using the Book of Common Prayer and the major elements of the Prayers of the People, Plater explains the construction of everyday litanies, collects, and petitionary prayers, as well as the composition of intercessions for church seasons, holy days, and special occasions. Plater begins by looking at the roots of intercession in the Bible, history, and ancient belief and practice, and goes on to offer practical advice for creating corporate intercessions in the local community. Intercession is a useful aid for liturgical study and planning for priests, pastors, deacons, lay ministers, and worship committees. Small prayer and intercessory groups will find it helpful for free-form prayer that is creative and flexible, yet grounded in prayerbook principles.
