Item Description...
Written for beginners as well as for those who have been trying to pray for a long time, this collection offers a bit of support, some fresh ideas, and a way of learning from others. This is where the experience of the community of believers, stretching back to the timeless wisdom of the Psalms can come to our aid. This book offers their insights, as well as those of the Celtic tradition that draws on the natural world as a sign of God's abiding presence. The traditions of various Christian churches--the noble simplicity of the Catholic liturgy, the liturgical traditions of the Anglican and Protestant, the transcendent vision of Orthodox, and Biblical canticles--are drawn on. In addition, the book offers points for reflection for morning and evening from a wide variety of sources, ranging from the Fathers of the Church to contemporary secular writers. The four-week cycle of morning and evening prayer is designed to harmonize with the character of each day. Various indexes help the reader to get the best out of the book. Owen O'Sullivan is an Irish-born priest of the Capuchin Franciscan order and the author of a number of books, including One God. Three Faiths.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Day by day  Sep 28, 2003
In the text 'Everyday Prayers for God's People', Owen O'Sullivan OFM has produced a short and useful text of prayers for those new to prayer life and those who have a lifetime of experience. If your tradition is one of spontaneous prayer, this book will give you insights; if your prayer life is based upon set liturgical patterns and texts, this book will give you interesting variations. Drawing upon the whole experience of the Christian church - Anglican, Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant - O'Sullivan brings many disparate things into harmony, and shines new light upon old familiars.

The heart of the book is a four-week cycle of daily prayers, both morning prayer and evening prayer. In these four page sections for each day, there are two pages for morning prayers and two pages for evening prayer. The prayers include praise, intercession, confession, thanksgiving, blessing and reflection. The prayers for each of the morning and evening are well suited for starting the day with energy and spirit, and for settling the spirit for a calm and peaceful night. The days also correspond generally to liturgical Christian practices that Monday would the start of the working week, Friday is a day of penance and special devotion, and Sunday would be the day of the Eucharist.

Each prayer has a source citation, which is a great bonus for those whose interests are scholarly, or for those who simply want to pursue more resources should a particular prayer or idea prove especially significant. Following the four-week cycle section, O'Sullivan provides a brief bibliography and reference material for further study.

The index of authors, sources and terms is especially welcome here. No simple list of names, it includes biographical information the authors and historical information on the sources, as well as good, useful definitions of terms. The reader can easily see the type of person who can produce certain types of prayers, beyond a simple name and date.

The last few pages include indexes of Psalms, other Biblical Canticles cited/used, a few pages of the most common prayers in Christian practice (these include the Lord's Prayer, the Hail Mary prayer, and some creeds - which are, for the technically minded, not prayers as such, but commonly recited liturgical pieces nonetheless).

Owen O'Sullivan is an Irish-born priest who has traveled and worked extensively throughout the world in his priestly vocation. A published author in many languages, he currently works as a parish priest in Belfast while continuing his writing vocation as editor of journals and regular newspaper columns.
