Move closer to God one day at a time by reading the Psalms and practicing prayer in ways you may not have imagined before.
This is a prayer book for every day of the year for people who don't usually think about using a prayer book. Drawing on a wide variety of resources—lives of saints and sages from every age, psalms, guides for personal reflection and suggestions for practice—Rev. Larry J. Peacock offers helpful guidance for anyone hungry for a richer prayer life. Each day's reading has four parts:
- Remember a notable person of faith or a significant event
- Read a psalm or another scripture passage
- Ponder that day's scripture or person of faith
- Practice a variety of ways to pray, including prayer through play, music and physical movement
This new edition features the addition of ancient and modern sages from inside and outside the Christian tradition as well as updated resources for deepening your spiritual life throughout the year.
