This Benedictine prayer companion presents a modern reworking of the ancient monastic practice of praying at set hours. For each season of the Christian Year, it provides eight short, simple prayer outlines, complete with readings: • Waking as an occasion for praise • Discernment at the beginning of the day • Wisdom for the mid-morning reflection • Perseverance at midday • Love as a focus of the afternoon • Forgiveness as the day closes • An invitation to Trust at bedtime • Midnight at the time to Watch Everything needed to follow the pattern of prayer is printed out in full, including scripture readings, short meditations, quotations from Christian writings, hymn texts and questions for reflection. Daily Prayer for All Seasons originated in the Episcopal Church of America (where it is authorised by the General Convention) and was compiled by a diverse team of priests, liturgists, writers and lay men and women. Bishop John Pritchard introduces this UK edition.

People in all kinds of religious traditions, including Judaism and Christianity, have been marking time with prayer for almost as long as we've divided the day into hours. "Praying the hours," as it's called, has always reminded us that God walks with us throughout each day; "praying the hours" is also a way that the community of faith comes together, whether we're united all in one place or scattered like raindrops. In the Episcopal Church, the Book of Common Prayer offers beautiful services for morning, noon, evening, and nighttime in a section called "The Daily Office" (pp 35-146). Daily Prayer for All Seasons offers a variation on that theme, where a complete service covers one or two pages, thereby eliminating the need to shuffle prayer books and hymnals. Daily Prayer for All Seasons works for individuals, small groups, and/or congregations. This prayer book presents a variety of images of God, uses inclusive and expansive language for and about God, and presents a rich variety of language, including poetry, meditation, and prayers from the broader community of faith. Approved for use by the General Convention of the Episcopal Church Deluxe edition makes a great gift Features bonded leather, 2 ribbon bookmarks, gilded edges, a presentation page, shrink-wrapped, and placed in a quality gift box Episcopalians are bound together by prayer, and when we draw those prayers from our diverse traditions and cultures, we come closer to the heart of God. "Daily Prayer for All Seasons" gives us prayers, poems and meditations in many voices to mark the hours of the day and the seasons of the year. I am grateful to the leaders from across the Episcopal Church who have collaborated on this important new set of prayers for everyday life. -- The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president, House of Deputies of The Episcopal Church A call to prayer that sounds through the hours of our days and nights, revealing God with us as the seasons turn. This generous book is simple and rich at the same time, full of beauty and shaped for use. May it open the prayer of those who pray alone and deepen the prayer of groups. --Sara Miles, Director of Ministry, St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal Church, and the author of Take This Bread and City of God, San Francisco, California Daily prayer, most especially the Daily Offices, has been characteristic of the Anglican liturgical tradition for more than four centuries. As the prayer book tradition has been reshaped by being planted in many diverse nations and cultures, the forms of daily prayer have been modified. Daily Prayer for All Seasons marks another stage in that evolution by asserting that, even in complex and busy lives, we are still called to turn our hearts and minds to God in remembrance that our very lives are God's first gift to us. --The Rev. Dr. Louis Weil, James F. Hodges and Harold and Rita Haynes Professor Emeritus of Liturgics, Church Divinity School of the Pacific Pray at all times and when necessary use words. These prayers will help you pray at all times and find the right words when necessary. In their diversity, these prayers are manna from heaven for folks who are seeking new and creative ways of prayer. This book will teach you how to pray. --The Reverend Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones, Priest for Pastoral Care & Community and Staff Chaplain, Trinity Wall Street Episcopal Church, New York, NY For stillness in the scrum of commuting; for peace and guidance during retreat; for vigor and hope in the midst of the day's work; for healing and wholeness in rest at the end, we pray - and may you and each community of which you are a part use this graceful gift to pray as well. --- The Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church

The Season of Light

Daily Prayer for the Lighting of the Advent Wreath

The Season of Light is a guide for families, households, classrooms, communities, and parishes who wish to make the lighting of the Advent candles a daily prayer. For each day of the season, from the First Sunday of Advent until Christmas Day, The Season of Light offers a brief liturgy that is based on the structure of Vespers or Evening Prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours: the lighting of the candles (the lucernarium"), a reading from the Advent Scriptures, petitions and collect, and a final blessing. The Advent wreath is one of the most enduring customs of the Christmas season. Rich in meaning, the four lights of the Advent wreath kindle "our blessed hope and manifestation of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ." (Titus 2:13). It is a symbol of our faith: that light and life will triumph over darkness and death, that our hope in God's providence and love will never leave us disappointed. With this rich tradition in mind, Jay Cormier has structured the daily liturgies in The Season of Light as follows: "The Lucernarium," the lighting of the candle(s); "The Word of God," in which a lector reads a Scripture passage that reflects the Advent themes of joyful expectation and the restoration of justice and peace in the dawning of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World; and "Prayers," in which the presider or leader offers petitions and all respond. Then the Lord's Prayer is recited, and the final collect and the blessing (including a scriptural blessing and a table blessing before meals) are offered by the presider. The structure and prayers in The Season of Light are offered as suggestions; adaptions are encouraged. For example, families may wish to make the intercessions an opportunity for spontaneous prayers offered by participants; groups with musical ability and leadership may want to incorporate hymns from the rich treasury of Advent and Christian hymnody; those who pray the Liturgy of the Hours regularly might consider including the Advent wreath custom with the psalms and prayers of the Hours. Designed for all those who wish to make the Advent wreath a daily prayer and part of their Christmas observance and tradition, The Season of Light helps Christians celebrate that we are an Advent people: a people who live in the eternal hope and expectation of the ever-burning light of Jesus Christ. Jay Cormier is the editor of Connections, a newsletter of ideas and resources for homilists. The Liturgical Press has also published his Lord, Hear Our Prayer: The Prayer of the Faithful for Sundays, Holy Days, and Ritual Masses and The Family Advent Wreath: Blessings and Prayers. "

- Focused on a topic of wide interest to the Episcopal Church - Essays from academics across the spectrum of perspectives The Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music sought input from multiple sources in order to better understand the charge of the General Convention of 2015 suggesting that it present a plan for the revision of the Book of Common Prayer to the 2018 Convention. While the individual chapters of this volume raise a variety of differing issues, they share a common assumption--that one of the sources of information for the Standing Commission and the Church in its deliberations ought to be the community of academically trained liturgical scholars. The hope of this volume is to open a conversation across the church that will continue in the future.

The Christian longing to share anguish, fear, gratitude, and awe has found expression in many forms of prayer, beginning in Scripture and the practices and words of Jesus. Over the centuries many fruitful approaches to prayer have taken hold, but often there is a certain unease about what is right or what is best. In this welcome and welcoming book, Fr. James Martin eases these concerns with thoughtful, practical encouragement about prayer in all of its forms. In All Seasons, For All Reasons is drawn from “Teach Us to Pray,” Fr. Martin’s very popular monthly column in Give Us This Day.

The Way of Living is the prayer and liturgy resource for the Lindisfarne Community, a new monastic religious order in the broadly Anglican-Celtic tradition. The motherhouse of the community is in Ithaca, NY. At the heart of the ancient monastic tradition was an emphasis on daily prayer and Bible reading. In the new monasticism, we are again finding our spiritual basis in a disciplined life of prayer, study, work and rest. The idea of a Daily Office is an ancient one in the Christian church. The daily prayers, Psalms, readings and meditations make for a balanced spiritual practice. The Way of Living is intended to be flexible and can be read each morning and/or evening or at some other suitable time. This edition is unique in using inclusive language for all its prayers, Bible readings, meditations, Psalms and Canticles, the "little songs" of scripture. You can read about the Lindisfarne Community on their website: http://www.lindisfarnecommunity.org You may contact them by e-mail: [email protected]

For every day (excluding Sundays) of the 2018/19 church year, there are full references and a quotation from the day’s set of Scripture readings, a concise but challenging commentary on the readings and a collect. In addition, the book includes a simple order for morning and night prayer, an introduction to the practice of daily prayer by Bishop John Pritchard and a guide to reading the Bible reflectively by Bishop Stephen Cottrell.

In this lovely book, prayer is presented to children as a heart-to-heart talk with God: to be with him, to speak to him, and to listen to him. As a child does with a loving father. It introduces to children the reasons for prayer, how to pray, where and when to pray, and then offers many different prayers for all occasions and church seasons. It shows children how we can tell God everything: our joys, our sorrows, our love, our gratitude, our trust, our needs, and even our weaknesses. And why we all need to communicate with God, to pray every day, for ourselves, and for others. To help children in their daily prayers and to learn a love for prayer, My Prayer Book brings together many of the great prayers of the Church, prayers for the whole liturgical year and seasons, prayers for every day, and prayers to love Jesus. A must have prayer book for all Catholic children!
