Publisher's Description

Drawing from Jesus' words to the disciples to become like children, Marilyn McCord Adams presents more than two hundred fifty original prayers that serve as powerful and practical examples of how adults can pray in a manner that combines the complexity and richness of their adult experiences with the candor and expectations of a child. The prayers in this collection encourage a deeper level of intimacy and openness to God, which McCord Adams believes will compel us to bring the pressing problems facing us directly to God. This resource, which can be used for public worship and private devotion, includes prayers that address social and personal concerns.
