These prayers can be used in almost any setting from the sanctuary to the stadium, as well as in study groups, prayer circles, nursing homes, or for private meditation. If you're looking for a prayer resource that speaks clearly about the Christian faith while addressing serious human questions, concerns, doubts, and distress, Gentle Words in a Raging Storm is a first-rate compilation you'll find yourself returning to again and again.
• Personal prayers
• Pastoral prayers
• Prayers about the seasons of life
• Prayers about suffering, dying, and grief
• Prayers for the journey of faith
• Prayers for special occasions
Gentle Words in a Raging Storm invites the worship leader to explore a rich variety of prayer topics, images, and metaphors. I would prescribe a careful reading of this book for anyone who suspects that repetition and sameness have invaded their public prayers.
