To all of God's children, pastor and layperson alike, this volume will lead them through weekly prayers to him. Through prayer, a connection is formed with God, which deepens one's faith. Planning for worship should be centered around how the church can most appropriately praise God, and Pastor Garth Wehrfritz-Hanson's volume of prayers allows pastors to focus on what is most important.
These prayers, often referred to as "prayers of the church" or "prayers of intercession," can be modified for any locale and denomination. People connect most to the Father through meaningful worship, and what makes them feel most welcome is when the service impacts their daily life, whatever they might be going through.
In Praying the Lectionary: Cycle B, Pastor Wehrfritz-Hanson recognizes the importance of these prayers and has written them for specific weeks of the church year. This lifesaver, worship-saver of a book is a resource that will make weekly worship planning easier, and more enjoyable, for any worship leader.
