An Invitation to Honest Prayer
by Elizabeth J. Canham
Pub Date 01 Apr 2013
Have you ever railed in anger about some situation in your life and wondered if something awful might happen because you dared express rage to God?
Or after some trauma, have you experienced a horrible sense of God's absence?
If you've had these or other feelings and wondered what to do with them, the Psalms provide a good way for you to pray about any situation.
Liz Canham, an Episcopal priest who specializes in offering spiritual guidance, makes the ancient book of Psalms accessible to today's reader.
Discover the beauty and power of the Psalms as you
* hear God's word in stillness and silence
* find stability in God's faithfulness
* deal with disappointment, anger, and pain
* rest in God's grace
* celebrate creation
* discover the holy in the ordinary
* experience joy and learn to praise God
Canham describes her reason for writing this book: "I want to share my delight in the Psalms and offer models for praying with them. I write for all the heart-hungry people of God who must live and pray in the midst of very busy lives."
