Common Prayer - A Daily Liturgy
“O Lord, let my soul rise up to meet you
as the day rises to meet the sun.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
Come, let us sing to the Lord : let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.”
Prayer is central to the Christian life, but for many of us it can also be very difficult to enter into the rhythm, or even to know what to say.
Shane Claiborne, Enuma Okoro, and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove understand these difficulties, and have created Common Prayer to help us enter into the rich tradition of Christian spirituality.
In their words, “Here you’ll find prayers for every evening, morning, and midday that celebrate the best of the Christian tradition and engage with the most pressing issues of our world today. There are also songs from various traditions, including African-American spirituals, traditional hymns, Mennonite gathering songs, and Taize chants—a ‘greatest hits’ from the church’s first 2000 years.”
