Offering hope and comfort to those facing pressure and anxiety, Pocket Prayers for Troubled Times offers both original and traditional prayers that speak of God's presence and faithfulness in adversity.
Tackling issues not covered in many standard prayer books, it reveals the value of prayer in all circumstances and contains seven themed chapters:
"Prayer may not `fix' our problems, but it does change both us and the emotional context of our relationships. Prayer gives God access to our over-defended lives. Prayer lets God's Spirit permeate the bone-hard ground of our confusions."
- Work, unemployment and money
- Home life and relationships
- Our broken world
- Our fragile earth
- In times of illness
- In times of bereavement
- Into God's hands
- John Pritchard
John Pritchard was appointed as Bishop of Oxford in 2007. He is an established author in the field of prayer and a contributor to Church House Publishing's daily Bible notes, Reflections for Daily Prayer.
