How to Pray: 5 Practical Tips
Each day has a great opening prayer, then a scripture reading that seems to have very little rhyme or reason; A Psalm for the week; a set of eight or nine readings from various authors like George MacDonald, Henri Nouwen, Theresa Avila, Gregory of Nyssa, Charles de Foucald and many others; space for silent and written, reflection; A hymn for the week; and a benediction. There are also twelve monthly retreat models, maybe something a covenant group could use A functional devotional for ministers.
There are also twelve monthly retreat models, maybe something a covenant group could use to lay the foundation to a season of communal prayer. The goal of this work appears to be to facilitate the practice of daily prayer, meditation, lectio divina, and communion with God by forming and shaping the habit of Scripture reading and prayer for the minister. One of the clear benefits of a minister employing this material is that none of it is following the lectionary, or lectio continua, and therefore is not for sermon preparation or other utilitarian approaches.
In other words, this book is simply for soul-care. If you're looking for a tool to use to use for your own personal maintenance, then I recommend "Guide to Prayer: For Ministers and Other Servants.

Although I have tried other devotionals, I find myself coming back to these three volumes which contain 52 chapters revolving around the theme of the lectionary readings for each week for each I learned of this book in from my pastor at the time, Rev. Although I have tried other devotionals, I find myself coming back to these three volumes which contain 52 chapters revolving around the theme of the lectionary readings for each week for each cycle: A, B, and C.
So many devotionals today tell you how to think. These books invite the reader to sit at the feet of Christ himself. Mar 15, Darryl rated it it was amazing. A solid book for those who prefer to actually read the Bible rather than read about it. This devotional guide provides planned daily readings, psalm readings, outside "readings for reflection" an invocation and benediction. Fifty six weeks of materials and twelve retreats.
This is much different than picking up a book by Max Lucado or Chuck Swindoll in that it provides an outline of texts to read each day of the week rather than a "chapter a day" meditation filled with the author's insights. Rueben Job challenges you to read and think on the texts themselves. While readings for reflection are provided, they are only excerpts from various writers St.
I truly love this book. Each week there is a Psalm, a set of readings, a listing of the Revised Common Lectionary passages, an outline for devotional, a hymn, and select readings from people like Henri Nowen and many others. I enjoy each week's selections and also the way it helps guide the prayer. It has been an immense help for me. There are also guided retreats, and I would like to do one of those soon.
If you are not a Minister or other servant I still think you would gain a lot from it. There is, however, a Guide to Prayer for those who are not in leadership. Excellent in every way! Wish I had found it many years ago. Sep 15, Susie Webster-toleno rated it liked it. This is a solid devotional. I like the fact that it is not lectionary related, so it's use has nothing to do with sermon prep and everything to do with relationship with God.
As a pastor I find it easy to overlook that in my devotional time, believe it or not. The language is kind of old, and the scholars and theologians quoted don't represent a very broad spectrum of thinkers, but what's there is good. There have been seasons in my life where this is been a wonderful devotional for me, and This is a solid devotional. There have been seasons in my life where this is been a wonderful devotional for me, and others where it simply didn't fit. Dec 20, Bill rated it really liked it.
I have found this to be a very useful guide to daily devotion. One does not read it straight through; rather it is worked through, studied through with the Bible, and prayed through. If you use this book as it is intended, it will become dog-eared and tear stained. At the end of a year I am beginning again. Jun 14, Beth rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites. THis is one of the best - if not the best devotional book I've ever owned. I have had it since the early 90s and have used it at different times since.
Jan 14, Rick Edwards rated it really liked it Shelves: devotion-spirituality. I found this guide extremely helpful at a very difficult time in my life.
I recommend it--it could be right for you, too. Aug 14, Mark rated it it was amazing Shelves: christianity , changed-me , spiritual-formation , own , physical-book.
Over the years I have tried a number of devotionals. Most seems either too simplistic or to ethereal. Even though I have read through each of the chapters several times, they continue to be fresh and challenging.
I have lost count of how many copies of this book I have given out. Nearly everyone has loved it as much as I, often gifting this book to others.
Feb 28, Jessieirwin rated it it was amazing. Shawchuck and Job have created and presented what I deem as my favorite devotion series. I adore how each week is devoted in an organized way which is aligned with the liturgical calendar.
