This collection of illuminated prayer cards is intended to help us to pray through all of life’s circumstances: our mornings and our evenings, our work and our worship, our families and our communities, our hopes for justice and healing, our experiences of joy and sorrow.
All 15 prayers in this collection, written by David Taylor, follow the pattern of a Collect Prayer. An ancient form of prayer, dating back to the 5th century of the church, a Collect Prayer hews to a basic biblical pattern of prayer that “collects” the heart’s desires in an offering of prayer to God. It is a form of prayer that frees us to offer all the parts of our lives to God in faithful devotion.
Each prayer card includes an original watercolor painting by Phaedra Taylor that embellishes the front.
