Prayers for the People

Things We Didn't Know We Could Say to God
  • By Terry Jonathan Stokes
Product Description
A collection of timely, stirring, and witty prayers that give language to the full breadth of our everyday experiences--from joy to sorrow, and everything in between.

In his debut collection of short-form prayers (aka collects), Terry Stokes names all the things we didn't know we could pray for: student loan cancellation; strength when we're about to make small talk; restraint when we have the opportunity to be petty. The collection features an impressive range of humor and inspiration, but also spans prayers of lament and solidarity, including:

- For when one dreads the thought of returning to work on Monday
- For when one has been left on read by a friend
- For before shooting one's shot
- For after shooting one's shot
- For before walking into Target
- For when one fears getting cancelled
- For those working in retail
- For when one's team is struggling

These tender, convicting, and entertaining prayers invite readers to see the wonders, joys, and access to God available in any scenario we may encounter. By putting words to the emotions and needs that lay beneath our petitions, our celebrations, and our resistance, Stokes's prayers make for an engaging and heartfelt read that will delight and encourage any person of faith in the modern age.
