Prayer Chapel in a Book

Note>>>The Divine Hours Pocket Edition is perfect for a prayer life stuck in the rut of down the list praying. This chapel-in-a-book is like a seven day crash diet aimed to refocus a praying pastor toward a regular and refreshed daily life of prayer. Seven days of seven daily segments, each with a variety of expressions, from readings to hymns to greetings to prayers of great saints.===>Click headline to access website . . .

A pocket edition of Phyllis Tickle's celebrated Divine Hours ™, perfect for traveling, business engagements, and other occasions when a small volume is ideal

When Phyllis Tickle's marvelous devotional trilogy The Divine Hours ™ appeared, readers responded with gratitude, praise, and a great many requests for an edition of hourly prayers that they could easily carry with them--an edition that would make this ancient form of Christian worship compatible with the pace and mobility of modern life.

Now, in The Divine Hours Pocket Edition ™, Tickle has gathered one full week of fixed-hour prayers, providing an ideal companion for travelers, office-workers, people on retreat or pilgrimage, as well as newcomers to this age-old spiritual practice. As Tickle writes in her introduction, "prayer is always a place as well as an action, and the daily offices are like small chapels or wayside stations within the day's courses." Seven of these daily offices are offered for each day of the week, and each office contains the Call to Prayer, the Request for Presence, the Greeting, the Reading, the Gloria, the Psalm, the Small Verse, the Lord's Prayer, the Petition, and the Final Thanksgiving. Tickle draws her texts primarily from the Book of Common Prayer and the writings of the Church Fathers, and includes memorable devotional and meditative poems by Cleland McAfee, Charles Wesley, Phos Hilaron, and others. Tickle also provides a chapter of "Traditional, Seasonal, and Occasional Prayers" in order to accommodate special dates like Advent, Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving; major life-changes such as marriage, birth, death, and illness; and moments of special petition or thanksgiving.

For all those who want to carry a "small chapel" of prayers with them, The Divine Hours Pocket Edition ™ offers a convenient, easy-to-use, and deeply spiritual guide to a devotional practice that extends all the way back to Christ and the twelve Apostles.
