This book invites all of us – in suffering and in celebration – into a loving communion with God.

What a joy it was to experience cover to cover, even if some of the liturgies were not applicable to the current period of my life. I can see myself reaching for so many of these prayers when I’m at a loss for words.

This collection of liturgies ranges from the broad “A Liturgy for Anger” to the more niche “A Liturgy for Browsing a Museum” or “A Liturgy for Washing Your Face.”

In addition to the prayers, there are also blessings, which feel like being encouraged and mentored by a wise friend.

Overall, this book is stunning. It would make a great bedside table book or a thoughtful gift!

Thank you to WaterBrook Multnomah and NetGalley for the e-arc!

Thank you to Waterbrook Multnomah Publicity team and Netgalley for this opportunity to read this book early as an advanced reader copy. I LOVED Audrey and Elizabeths first liturgy book and bought a copy for everyone I knew. I was PUMPED to hear them announce their second volume.

This volume brings me to tears easily. The first book was more situational - so some liturgies applied to my life whereas a lot of them didn't and just weren't the season I was in (I loved reading them still and sending them to other people!). This book I feel will have many many liturgies that apply to each reader. The book is segmented into sections: For the Mind, For the Senses, For the Body, For the Heart, For the Soul, For the Home, For the Community, and For the World.

Some of my favorites so far include: a blessing for imperfection, A liturgy for the morning, A liturgy for loving your body, A liturgy for falling in love, a Liturgy for forgiving a parent, A liturgy for accepting yourself, A liturgy for unanswered prayers, A liturgy for grieving the loss of something you never had, a blessing for a dinner party, A liturgy of gratitude for your community, A liturgy for those overwhelmed by the news- just to name a few.

Go buy this book when it releases (February 20, 2024)- then buy a copy for everyone you know.
