In the aftermath of any crisis, people lurch from vivid flashbacks to empty numbness, from needing to know to wanting to forget. Frightened, we need safety. Exhausted, we want strength. Disoriented, we seek guidance. With our sense of security in ruins, we instinctively turn to prayer for the comfort, energy, and interior calm to do the work of grieving, healing, and rebuilding. This book provides prayers and brief reflections, ancient and modern, from the Christian tradition and from others as well. The texts are gathered around themes such as safety and deliverance, strength and guidance, mourning and remembrance, renewal and reconciliation, restoring and rebuilding, and thanksgiving and praise. Prayers in Times of Crisis is a comforting resource for anyone facing crisis or recovering from trauma, be it a public tragedy or a personal one. Published by Liturgy Training Publications.
