Prayers of the People for Each Sunday of the Church Year - Based on the Revised Common Lectionary
From the back cover:
If you are looking for inspiration and guidance for the often demanding pastoral prayer this book offers a complete church year of suggestions.
According to author David Sparks, the pastoral prayer is about bringing ourselves individually and as a faith community into right relationship with God, and about expressing our compassion for suffering, wherever it is found. To that end, Sparks has put together a resource that helps clergy and lay leaders create relevant and involving prayers.
Based on the scripture readings from the Revised Common Lectionary for each week of Year A, the prayers offer a responsive format that can be adapted to a variety of settings and a congregation's immediate circumstances.
Each prayer is divided into four easily identifiable sections: world, suffering, church, ourselves.
The book also includes: Data CD, how to use section, thematic index, scripture index, icons in the margin for quick reference.
