Written prayers redux
Posted by Ros Clarke, 26 Apr 2018
Ros Clarke highlights a couple of additional resources for those interested in using written prayers.
Following our podcast episode on written prayer books, a listener contacted us to point out an excellent article written a couple of years ago by Jane Tooher on ‘The Worthwhileness of Written Prayers’. The article also includes a series of links at the end to some more useful reading around this area.
We also mentioned some of the books of prayers by Andrew Case, lamenting the lack of a ‘general’ book for those who are not mothers, wives, husbands etc. He has just published a wonderful volume meeting exactly this need, in which he has compiled a series of prayers that are saturated in scripture. I have been using one of these in my quiet time each day since I got the book and have found it a great enrichment to my personal prayer life. Praying the Light: Unfolding the Rich Intercession of the Bible is free for Kindle, and can also be purchased in paper form.
ETA: Sorry, it’s no longer free for Kindle but at £2.14 it’s still worth it!
