The goal of prayer is to practice it without ceasing. Focusing on the prayer lives of the laity, this book includes stories of individuals seeking to connect their faith with their work in the world. The goal of this connection is to affirm that prayer is both a quiet act of reverence and an active dynamic expressed in daily life situations at work and home. Through the stories of people at work and prayer, the book seeks to encourage an understanding of prayer as that dimension of our relationship with God equally alive at work and at play, in public and at home.

Praying To A French God

As a phenomenologist Lacoste is concerned with investigating the human aptitude for experience; as a theologian Lacoste is interested in humanity’s potential for a relationship with the divine, what he terms the ’liturgical relationship’. Beginning from the proposition that prayer is a theme that occurs throughout Lacoste’s writing, and using this proposition as a heuristic through which to view, interpret and critique his thought, this book examines Lacoste’s place amid both the recent ’theological turn’ in French thought and the post-war emergence of la nouvelle théologie. Drawing upon unpublished and out of print material previously only available in French, Romanian or German, the book will be of interest to scholars of philosophy, phenomenology and theology.

The 'Our Father' is often repeated as a set prayer, but rarely prayed as a pattern. However, using it as a framework can let it blossom into our whole life. This book takes a holistic approach to praying, encouraging us to take seriously the fact that Christ gave us this prayer and challenging us to weave it into our lives more fully. Here are creative ideas for prayer groups, retreats and worship as well as for devotional use by individuals: praying with the body, with organisers, scrapbooks, stones, cards, labyrinths, lifestyles and liturgies. Then share your own discoveries on the book's website. Books on the Lord's prayer tend to be one of two kinds. On the one hand there are scholarly books which go into the history, theology and literary things. On the other hand there are more 'devotional' books with meditations on the the prayer. There seem to be few books that take the insights about meanings and structure of the prayer and turn them into practical strategies for praying. Praying the Pattern fills the gap between noting that the 'Our Father' is supposed to be a structuring framework for prayer and the usual practice of recitating the prayer while using other patterns to shape everyday prayer. You can interact with the book and the author at the book's website where there is also new material not in the book, like liturgies, further links, articles and readers' comments.

Praying and Preying offers one of the rare anthropological monographs on the Christian experience of contemporary Amazonian indigenous peoples, based on an ethnographic study of the relationship between the Wari’, inhabitants of Brazilian Amazonia, and the Evangelical missionaries of the New Tribes Mission. Vilaça turns to a vast range of historical, ethnographic and mythological material related to both the Wari’ and missionaries perspectives and the author’s own ethnographic field notes from her more than 30-year involvement with the Wari’ community. Developing a close dialogue between the Melanesian literature, which informs much of the recent work in the Anthropology of Christianity, and the concepts and theories deriving from Amazonian ethnology, in particular the notions of openness to the other, unstable dualism, and perspectivism, the author provides a fine-grained analysis of the equivocations and paradoxes that underlie the translation processes performed by the different agents involved and their implications for the transformation of the native notion of personhood.

Praying For One Another

Praying for one another focuses on corporate or "body" praying, whereas most books on prayer emphasize personal or individual praying. Both kinds of prayer are important. Yet in the Book of Acts nearly all references to prayer are about praying in groups. This book traces the activities and growth of the church in Acts, demonstrating how "body" praying can become a key to releasing God's power. --from back cover.
