Publisher's Description

Just Prayer is a four-week prayer cycle for morning and evening readings to support people who "hunger and thirst for justice." Patterned on the ancient monastic Hours, it offers psalms, intercessions, and reflections fashioned to strengthen a personal commitment to justice. The weekly themes are: recognizing God’s command that we act justly; lamenting suffering and injustice in our world; repenting our failures and renewing our commitment to justice; and, finally, celebrating God’s promise of justice lived as a new heaven and new earth. Weekly reflections encourage personal transformation by emphasizing the connection between justice action and peaceful communities.

Created with parishes, youth groups, mission trip participants, and social justice organizations in mind, Just Prayer supports hands-on service work in local communities. By repeating and building upon the prayer sequences in Just Prayer, we can conform our hearts more fully to Christ’s living message of compassion and justice for the least among us.

The print edition features a soft, leather-like cover and a durable ribbon for convenient daily prayer.

Editorial Reviews

Just Prayer is a marvelous new resource for anyone committed to both the advancement of social justice and the imperative to remain grounded in prayer. With this volume in hand, believers will be better prepared to respond to the cries of our neighbors in need and to the call of God. With moments of lament as well as celebration, this four-week cycle of morning and evening prayer will challenge participants in a courageous yet joyful way along the path of a spirituality of transformative conversion.
Thomas Massaro, SJ, Dean and Professor of Moral Theology, Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University

Unless peacemakers and seekers of justice are grounded in a vital spiritual life, their good work for social change can appear shrill and judgmental. Alison Benders understands this critical need for peacemakers to be men and women of prayer and spiritual depth. Just Prayer is a gem of a book that will help all who thirst for justice to deepen their compassion in these passionate prayers based on the church's Liturgy of Hours.
Donald Cozzens, author of Notes from the Underground: The Spiritual Journal of a Secular Priest and the novel, Master of Ceremonies

Truly exceptional, inspired and inspiring, Just Prayer: A Book of Hours for Peacemakers and Justice Seekers is very highly recommended for pastoral and lay readers alike. It will prove an enduringly popular addition to church, seminary, and personal Christian prayer book reference collections and meditation/spirituality reading lists.
