The words that describe our deepest longings for God, our highest praise for God, and our most distant wanderings from God are often the starting points of our prayers. Prayers & Litanies for the Christian Season focuses each prayer or litany on one word in the vocabulary of our faith, moving through the liturgical year by voicing the language of our hearts. The book is divided into the six seasons of the Christian year: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost. Primarily designed for congregational worship, the words are appropriate for invocations, prayers of confession, pastoral prayers, and benedictions. A reader using the book for personal devotion will find the poetic style of the prayers fitting for moving through the year "word by word."

"Sensitively touching and measuring the pulsebeat of our souls, Sledge supplies us with language that ushers us into the presence of the Holy One and enables us to speak of all that matters most. The pace, tone, and promise of her carefully selected words resonate with the undeniable rhythms, aspirations, and problems of our spirits. She blends essential interests of personal spirituality with fundamental themes of the Christian year. A subtle, virtually imperceptible transformation occurs while paying attention to the captivating terminology of this book born in the depths of the author's religious experience, and we suddenly find ourselves - perhaps with astonishment - framing our own words and uninhibitedly speaking to God about the intimate concerns of our lives." -C. Welton Gaddy, Executive Director, The Interfaith Alliance, Washington, D.C., Pastor for Preaching and Worship, Northminster Church, Monroe, Louisiana
"Sharlande Sledge's prayers and litanies are biblically sound, theologically deep, and spiritually fresh. Her ability to tell the hard truth about human experience without ever ceasing to thank God is a great gift to those of us who have had enough of sentimental "Christianity." -Barbara Brown Taylor, Author of The Preaching Life and When God is Silent
"There can't be enough fresh air or good prayers. Sharlande has given us more of both in crisp, useful, seasonal words. We will breathe and pray better because of her." -Donna E. Schaper, Associate Conference Minister Western Area, Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of ChristAbout the Author:
Sharlande Sledge is Associate Pastor of Lake Shore Baptist Church in Waco, Texas.
