Overview

Sometimes prayers fl ow easily, and people can talk to God as naturally as they would to a dear friend. At other times, though the words just won't come, no matter how hard they try to pray.

So what can Christians do when they can't pray, or when they need a prayer for a specifi c occasion and don't know where to start? They can turn to the prayers of other believers to be carried into God's presence.

Prayers for Life's Ordinary and Extraordinary Moments is a unique collection of prayers that give readers words to pray on those occasions when they can't fi nd words of their own.

The honest, heartfelt prayers, written by staff members of The

Upper Room and the General Board of Discipleship, address such categories as

• For the People We Love

• Birthdays and Milestones

• The Cry for Justice

• Loss and Grief

• In Uncertain Times

• Asking for Healing

• Facing Our Own and

Others' Imperfections

• Spiritual Searching

• Gratitude for Ordinary

Miracles

"Being able to pray is a privilege and a gi? ," Mary Lou Redding writes. "This collection is a gi? to us for the times we need someone to help us say what we want to say to God."

Through this book, readers will learn how to touch the heart of

God when they aren't able to articulate their own prayers.
