Opening to God

Marilyn Mccord Adams

Opening to God

Marilyn Mccord Adams

$30.99

Paperback
Drawing from Jesus' words to the disciples to "become like children," Marilyn McCord Adams presents more than 250 original prayers that serve as powerful and practical models of how adults can pray in a manner that combines the complexity and richness of their adult experiences with the candor, emotional immediacy, demands, and expectations of a child. The prayers in this collection encourage us to move to a deeper level of intimacy and openness to God, which Adams believes will compel us to bring the pressing problems facing us directly to God. Scripture references are provided at the end of each prayer, making the prayers easier to use in public worship and during private meditation. These wide-ranging and moving prayers address our understandings of God and the Bible, our daily needs, and social and personal concerns such as peace, justice, care of the environment, and responding to God's call. Book jacket.
