Overview

In the spirit of the Book of Common Prayer, Art Nelson provides a new collection of public and private prayers to help us meet the uncertainties of life with the dignity of prayer.

Often when situations of very specific pain or joy arise (pregnancy at risk, marriage crisis, addiction, psychosis, incarceration, rape, celebrating wedding or anniversary, victory over abuse, etc.), we struggle to find the right words to pray for that situation. The high emotion of the moment or the longstanding nature of a chronic illness or the shock of enduring a national crisis leave us frustrated at just the time when we want and need to pray.

This is a difficult and uncertain time for individuals, communities and nations. These timely and sensitive prayers are meant to stimulate reflection and provide reassurance—both for us and for those we pray for.

Editorial Reviews

Rev. Dr. Donald H. Fagerberg
"Art Nelson has created a wonderful resource for pastors and for all who use prayer for themselves and in their ministry with others. I especially recommend A Book of Prayers to Stephen Ministers. As one who has felt a special call to mentor pastors of all denominations as they strive for excellence, I heartily recommend this wonderful book authored by my good friend and colleague Art Nelson."
