It's the end of a long day. You're in bed feeling as worn out as your favorite flannel pajamas when you reach for a copy of June Cotner's new book, "Bedside Prayers." You read a passage from the "Nightfall" section and soon are lulled to sleep by a gentle prayer.
Poulsbo author June Cotner doesn't mind if her book puts you to sleep. In fact, she took special care to find just the right poems and prayers to sleep on and rise by. Her collection includes inspirational poems and prayers that offer comforting words and wisdom.
"Bedside Prayers" includes poetry and prayers drawn from Christian, Gaelic, Native American and ancient Chinese traditions. Cotner feels it can be read by anyone seeking spiritual comfort or guidance, regardless of one's religion or ethnic origin. -- The Sun, November 19, 1997
Once again, as she did with GRACES, June Cotner has compiled a beautiful and highly readable book. Let it find a permanent place on your nightstand. -- Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for the Soul
From the Inside Flap
Whether quiet and introspective or heartfelt and celebratory, blessings are a way for us to greet each new day with thanks and hope. In Bless the Day, June Cotner shares with us a treasury of poems and prayers that touch the heart and nurture the spirit.
Arranged by theme, the pieces in this collection focus on hope, courage, and love as thoughtfully as they do on inspiration, faith, and strength.
The blessings here are meant to be shared with family and friends at life's great events, offering comforting words for the bereaved, encouraging words for graduates, inspiring words for newlyweds, and songs of hope for readers on any occasion.
Filled with the wisdom of timeless poets like Emily Dickinson, enlightened thinkers like Mother Teresa, and fresh voices whose words pierce the soul, Bless the Day offers comfort and encouragement throught the hard times and makes the good ones even more memorable.
