Overview

A collection of contemporary prayers -- more than two month's worth -- for today's busy priest (and for everyone baptized into the priesthood of Christ). This book is divided into two parts. The first section, entitled "Scriptural Meditations," is comprised of 31 intercessory prayers of petition based on Biblical themes. The second section, entitled, "Saintly Intercessions," is comprised of 31 intercessory prayers directed to popular saints such as John Vianney and Francis de Sales.

"Prayer is at the center of a priest's life. In Prayers for Priests Father Haney shares his journey of faith that is at once challenging and consoling, unique and universal. Of course, sharing one's prayer life with the public is a delicate, risky business. But when it is done with raw honesty and graced candidness, it has the potential of transforming the mind and the heart of the reader/prayer. These prayers work because they foster our union with God and our love for the world. They are a collection that is faith-filled, conversational in tone, and deeply grounded in the mystery of the indwelling Trinity. We have enough books about prayer; here is a prayer book that truly fosters the lifting of the mind and heart to our triune God. A great gift that will enrich the prayer life of pastors and parishioners alike." —Bishop Robert Morneau, Diocese of Green Bay
