Call on Me: A Prayer Book for Young People
This prayer book designed for teens draws on the Book of Common Prayer, the Bible and events that occur in their daily lives. This creative compilation of over 100 original prayers offers simple and insightful instruction about prayer. It offers a wealth of diverse prayers on all manner of topics from prayers for the days of the week, to seasons of the year. Youth will find prayers to celebrate personal achievements and to address obstacles to grace and faith. The structure of the book will be in three parts: Common Prayer, including Morning Prayer, Compline, and Prayers of the People. Evening Prayer will not be included because most teens are busy with homework, sports and other extracurricular programs at that time. Compline is a popular liturgy at retreats for youth. Kinds of Prayer: Traditional and original prayers of adoration, praise, thanksgiving, penitence, oblation, intercession and petition. Personal Prayer: Divided into categories: Faith, Through the Day, Through the Year, Self, Milestones, Friends and Family, School and Work, Community and Work. Prayers include Confirmation, obtaining a driver’s license, death of a friend, graduation, argument with a parent, moving, going to camp, table graces, seasons of the Church year, homelessness, joy, thoughts of suicide, reconciliation. A prayer and scripture index are also included. A website www.episcopalprayer.org will support the book, inviting youth to share their own prayers.
