Description

This collection of prayers by noted Hebrew Bible scholar Walter Brueggemann can be used in both public worship and private devotion. These prayers run the gamut from particular days in the church year to special moments in the lives of worshiping communities to events playing out on the world stage. In all cases, the prayers spur us toward acts of justice and peacemaking and call on God to heal and restore God’s hurting and broken people.

"The prayers are geared toward concerns surrounding justice, from violence to poverty to denying oneself rest. The prayers can be used communally or individually. The book would be a good resource for anyone working in public ministry." – The Bible Today
