Fifty new prayers from young and old and from folk around the globe – from Glasgow to Cincinnati, from Malawi to Alaska, including well-known Iona Community writers like John Harvey, Ian M. Fraser, Peter Millar, Yvonne Morland, Chris Polhill, Thom Shuman, Brian Woodcock, the Wild Goose Resource Group and many others
A pocketbook of prayers that might be used in a daily discipline, many on the concerns of the Iona Community – poverty and economic justice, welcome and hospitality, interfaith dialogue, church renewal, peacemaking.
A prayer book to use in church worship, and to carry in your coat or handbag out into the world: to connect with the still small voice in the midst of the busyness and babble; to root yourself firmly in the Word.
There are prayers here for the renewal of global and local community, and for recharging the battery of your mobile phone: ‘Either He is the Lord of everything or He is Lord of nothing,’ wrote George MacLeod, founder of the Iona Community.
Also includes a helpful ‘scrapbook’ of thoughts on prayer from many sources.
