Patterns of daily and monthly practices in this book are similar to previous Guides to Prayer, but in this 4th volume, you will find a few differences. The Revised Common Lectionary provides the scripture reading for Sunday, but the daily scripture readings for the rest of the week are different. The pattern of prayer has been modified and is more centered on scripture and ancient forms of prayer than the previous Guides. Readings for reflection are drawn from writers such as Francis of Assisi, Teresa of Avila, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Henri Nouwen, Sue Monk Kidd, Parker J. Palmer, Douglas Steere, Jan L. Richardson, Trevor Hudson, Flora Slosson Wuellner, and many others. The indexes feature a bibliography of resources on prayer and an index of scripture readings keyed to weekly themes.
Beautifully bound in a leather-like cover, A Guide to Prayer for All Who Walk with God is an inspiring prayer book for personal use or gift giving.
