Review

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. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

By A Customer on June 9, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This anthology is filled with spiritually comforting & inspirational passages--BUT I appreciate that it does NOT have a Christian/Scripture bent. The passages are short paragraphs or poems (not long essays & stories like the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series) I work in the "helping professions" and find reading this a great way to stay centered & effective before working with difficult clients. I suspect folks in recovery would really enjoy this book. I bought this book for my 89 year old grandmother who is homebound and marked favorite passages to share with her. I am a real person, not a publisher trying to sell copies of this book.

By A Customer on December 7, 1999
Format: Hardcover
With its cozy quilt theme, Bedside Prayers is right at home on the bedside table--ready for reading, meditating and praying before sleep. Each contribution is short and accessible, with topics touching on silence, love, aging, darkness and light, blessings, simplicity and much more. Cotner's title may refer to our bedroom hours, but her collection contains thoughts readers can cherish throughout the day.

I do, indeed, keep this little book by my bed and reach for it morning, noon and night. The prayers/poems are wonderful, uplifting, inspiring and calming. When I go to bed frazzled, reading the nightfall prayers and poems always helps to calm me.

The book is divived into five sections: Inspiration, Comfort, Reflections, Nightfall and Morning.

One of my favorite poems is "Poet's Prayer" by Kate Robinson:

In you through whom

all things speak,

use me please

to sing your song.

This is the book to turn to when you need comfort or want to pray and the words won't come. It helps you take that deep breath that you need and find comfort in the words shared by other people who have felt what you feel. "A Midnight Conversation with God" is one of my favorite reflections within the collection of poems. Highly recommend this book to all -- even those who typically wouldn't consider "religious" books. This is a book about finding solace for your soul and inspiration for your spirit.

I loved this book so much I had to have June as a guest on The Real Dr Doolittle Podcast Show With Val Heart. June Cotner is so passionate about animals and spirituality. I learned so many beautiful things from her. You won't be able to put it down.
