Writing to God: 40 Days of Praying with My Pen [NOOK Book]

Overview

"Hackenberg's words have a heartbeat---sometimes they are beautiful and otherworldly; other time they are simple and earthy. When I read her prayers, I'm sure I have just prayed. But she wants me to take up my pen and pray. With a prayer, a Scripture passage, and a task, she gives me a personal invitation and permission to enter the incarnational practice of writing my words to God." - Sybil MacBeth, author of Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God

Overview

"Hackenberg's words have a heartbeat---sometimes they are beautiful and otherworldly; other time they are simple and earthy. When I read her prayers, I'm sure I have just prayed. But she wants me to take up my pen and pray. With a prayer, a Scripture passage, and a task, she gives me a personal invitation and permission to enter the incarnational practice of writing my words to God." - Sybil MacBeth, author of Praying in Color: Drawing a New Path to God

"For some, speaking to God comes naturally---for others, speaking to God feels awkward, especially when we can't find the words or begin to stumble in mid-sentence. Hackenberg offers an alternative way. Writing to God is an expression of deep humility---it seems to say, "If I can write to God, so can you." - Donald capps, Professor of Pastoral Theology (Emeritus), Princeton Theological Seminary

"Inspiration can come at any time or place, awakening the artist, writer, and creator in all of us just by picking up a pen and letting the words flow. Living with this book will make each day a holy adventure." - Bruce Epperly, author of Holy Adventure: 41 Days of Audacious Living

Designed for use during any 40-day period, Writing to God relieves you of the self-conciousness of trying to pray "the right way." Ideal for Lent, this innovative new addition to the "Active Prayer Series" includesa a special section of prayers and prompts for Holy Week and Easter, for anyone using the book during Lent to deepen a life with God.
