Like its predecessors, this Guide offers a daily pattern for those seeking a rhythm of devotion and personal worship. A Guide to Prayer for All Who Seek God follows the Christian year and the lectionary readings. Each day offers guidance for an opening affirmation, a petition of prayer, and daily scripture selections. The Readings for Reflection reach back to early Christian classics and include voices from recently published works. Excerpts come from writers such as Frederick Buechner, Joyce Rupp, Henri Nouwen, Mother Teresa, Howard Thurman, C.S. Lewis, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, John Wesley, and many others. These excerpts are arranged in weekly themes. Job and Shawchuck also include spiritually grounded explanations of the seasons of the church year to introduce each section of the book.
This deluxe edition includes Bible binding, a ribbon bookmark, round corners, gold edges, and a leather-like cover in emerald green.
