The Practice of Prayer

Prayer is essential to congregational life. Prayer is not only a community activity it is also an individual activity. Some say, "all life is prayer." If you seek direction about prayer offered as individuals, consider Prayer of Examen. If you are looking for a resource that provides prayers for worship, prayers that account for real life in down-to-earth language, pick up Common Prayer: A Liturgy for Ordinary Radicals.
