The Intercessions Resource Book
Everyday language, images and experiences are used in each of the three main sections. The first, looking at intercessions in mainstream worship, offers prayers
· for each of the 12 months
· for major festivals and their seasons
· for special days like Mothering Sunday
· on themes such as light, storms and fear
The second section provides intercessions for use in informal worship and small groups, while the third, focusing on personal payers, includes a section for extroverts.
Praise for The Intercessions Handbook:
‘A wake-up call to all those who . . . need to find encouragement, freshness, balance and perseverance in this work of grace.’
[On The Intercessions Handbook]: Gives a wealth of ideas for praying, in different types of services, for different situations . . .
Packed with a rich selection of prayers and practical ideas intended to breathe new life into prayer.
An excellent resource taking us through the problems and challenges of intercessory prayer. It has humour and helps us to clarify our thoughts on how we ought and ought not to pray.
An invaluable aid, both for those who find themselves asked to lead intercessions for the first time and for those who already have experience of this area of ministry . . . Probably the best book on this topic available today.
A wake-up call to all those who are in any way involved in public worship and prayer and need to find encouragement, freshness, balance and perseverance in this work of grace.
Has rescued many people who have had the duty of leading intercession at worship, thrust upon them.
