9780005993781: 2000 Years of Classic Christian Prayers: A collection for public and private use

A valuable collection of prayers selected from 2,000 years of Christian history . This wonderful worship resource can be used for private prayers, in small groups and in church services of all denominations.

This is a wonderful worship resource which people can use for their own private times with God or in small groups and church services. The prayers are grouped according to various themes: praise, spiritual growth, world issues, home and family, bereavement and loss, prayers for use during the day, Christian festivals, and so on. The sources of the prayers range from the Bible to the ancient liturgies used by the early Church, Reformers like Martin Luther, contemporary saints like Mother Teresa, and many, many more. Prayers written by Christians around the world are also included, which gives an international flavour too.

O Lord, never allow us to think we can stand by ourselves and not need you, our greatest need.
John Donne (1571 1631)

God, give us the serenity to accept what cannot be changed;
Give us the courage to change what should be changed;
Give us the wisdom to distinguish one from the other.
Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)
