Prayers for the Bride of Christ
"Our Heavenly Father, we are thankful that though Your will guides the heavenly bodies in their background of immensity, yet Your love sustains our human bodies and souls in astonishing intimacy." So begins one of the prayers in this collection, each of which was originally created to lead a worshiping congregation. They are drawn from the author's ministry as pastor and counselor, spanning more than a half-century, and give voice to the whole range of human thoughts, emotions, and concerns. They marvel at the mystery and beauty of the Creator and His creation, address the heart cries of individuals, encourage faith, and speak of timely issues. They express love and assurance to the fellowship of Jesus' followers, the "Bride of Christ."
