Compiled and edited by Mary Lou Redding

Product Description
Sometimes our prayers flow easily, and we talk to God just as naturally as we would to a dear friend. But at other times we can’t find words to express our thoughts, no matter how hard we try. What can you do when you can’t pray, or when you need a prayer for a specific occasion but don’t know where to start? You can turn to the prayers of other Christians for help.

Prayers for Life’s Ordinary and Extraordinary Moments is a unique collection of prayers that gives you words to pray in those times when you can’t find words of your own. And what an appropriate compiler and editor for this collection: Mary Lou Redding, editorial director of The Upper Room daily devotional guide.

The honest and heartfelt prayers were written by staff members of The Upper Room, the General Board of Discipleship, and Africa Upper Room. They address the following categories:
  • For the People We Love
  •  Birthdays and Milestones
  • The Cry for Justice
  • Loss and Grief
  •  In Uncertain Times
  • Asking for Healing
  • Facing Our Own and Others’ Imperfections
  • Spiritual Searching
  •  Gratitude for Ordinary Miracles

    “Being able to pray is a privilege and a gift,” writes Mary Lou Redding. “Use this collection of prayers for the times you need someone to help you say what you want to say to God.”
