The biddings and prayers written and compiled by Max Kramer launch us into praise, thanksgiving and intercession. He brings together ancient and contemporary, beautiful and simple prayers to provide treasure for every Sunday and every topic. We are drawn into praying with a Jesus-shaped heart. During the Liturgy or informal prayer, anyone leading the Prayer of the Faithful, lay or ordained, will find this book a wonderful resource which will be mined time and time again. -- Archbishop Stephen Cottrell 'This is a book I've been searching for. Recognisably contemporary in its desire and expression, reassuringly graceful and faithful in its hope, this collection is an attractive invitation to us all to pray together and to get a glimpse as to how we might ourselves be part of the answer to the raw need of the world.' -- Mark Oakley, Dean of St John's College, Cambridge
