Drawing on the readings, the significance of feasts, and other celebrations, Father Michael Kwatera is attuned to the many ways we approach God and writes in language that is clear and attentive to the quality of spoken prayer. The fruit of this work is a set of texts that invites the community to draw near to God in prayer each week. Includes a CD-ROM of intercessions (each prayer is provided in a Word file) that allows users to easily personalize the intercessions for their own parish.

"Michael has created an essential resource for anyone charged with the task of writing prayers. Whether used `as is' or adapted to local needs, his beautiful and poetic imagery brings new life to the prayer of the community." -- Barbara Guenther, Pastoral Associate for Liturgy and Music, Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Catholic Community, Albuquerque, New Mexico
"I currently use Fr. Michael Kwatera's book for Cycle A as a guide in preparing the Prayers of the Faithful for our liturgies and am very pleased to see that he continues to connect the prayer intentions to the prayer of the Psalm for the day. The rhythm, phrasing, and content of the intercessions are easily read by the Lector, and they draw the assembly into more meaningful prayer. I look forward to continuing to use this wonderful resource in preparing the Prayers of the Faithful." -- Pat Spence, Liturgist, Immaculate Conception Church, Rice, Minnesota
"Once again, Michael Kwatera, OSB, uses his gift to craft Prayers of the Faithful which are full, but simple; flowing, but succinct. In revisiting each day's readings, Fr. Kwatera seeks to present our age-old, yet new-today prayers in a coherent style which invites adaptation by each assembly. This is a welcome addition to any liturgist's work space." -- Sister Marie Garman, IHM, Incarnation of Our Lord Convent, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
