Item Description...
Overview
Combating their distorted sense of time and space, anyone with addictions will find comfort in this hourly structure that nourishes them from the start of the day, through their working hours, and into the safety and peace of nighttime. Praying Throughout the Day uses the format of the Church's Liturgy of the Hours as a framework for people with adductions to pray their way through each day, hour by hour. Guided by Scripture and the saints, readers will become immersed in salvation history and empowered to move from one struggle to the next. This book combines the best wisdom of spiritual formation, i.e., regularity in prayer, with modern methods of addiction recovery, and will appeal to those with addictions of all kinds. In addition to those with addictions or in self-help programs, this book will be most useful to counselors, retreat directors, pastoral ministers, chaplains, and all healing professionals.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
When One Day at a Time is Too Long  Feb 22, 2009
The knowledge of the rooms is one day at a time, yet sometimes even one day at a time can seem like too much. For this, there is Harriet Roberts' "Praying Throughout the Day."

Can't make it the entire day? How about six hours? Breaking the day into morning prayer, mid-day prayer, evening prayer, and night prayer helps to make a single day a little more manageable. This is a book of the hours, and follows a fourteen day cycle meditation on the passion of Jesus, someone who knows full well the pains of our world, has experienced the pain and struggle of being human.

Each prayer period is broken up with an invitation to prayer, a hymn, an antiphon, a psalm, a prayer to carry, a reading, a response, an action, and a response prayer.

My present practice is to pray whenever I find time in the day and need the strength. I don't stress about making all of the prayer periods or fret if I miss one or even an entire day. If I miss a day, I skip that day in the prayer book and move onto the next day. It's reassuring that there is always a set of prayers to guide me wherever I am at in the day. I find it helpful to read the hour's prayers out loud or to whisper them silently without voice.

This book packs a lot of prayer in a small size, which makes it easy to carry throughout the day. It's not targeted on a specific addiction, but rather the non-specific addictions that all humans have. Attachment and addiction are part of the human condition, and we all struggle against them. Thankfully for the struggle, when even just a single day can seem too much to take, there is this small book of prayer to help us through the hours. For those who struggle with addiction and are looking for a prayer routine to hold onto, I think this book is well worth the price, but like the rooms, it can't help unless you show up.
