Call on Me belongs on the bookshelf of every youth, parent, youth minister and clergy of the Church. It is a rich resource for personal devotion, corporate worship and formation purposes. Praying does shape believing. This book will be instrumental in deepening the faith of all who use it. The Rt. Rev. Brian Prior, Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota
Prayer is an epic adventure and Call on Me points young Christian readers toward a lifetime of hope and discovery. I can imagine giving the book to my godchildren, soon developing a texting shorthand to exchange the right prayer at the right time. Lisa Kimball, Prof. , Christian Formation and Congregational Leadership, Virginia Theological Seminary
The prayers are beautifully written and created with much care and concern for our young people. I am thankful that families and teens have this "gold mine" of prayers at their fingertips. Call On Me is the book I always wanted and needed as a youth minister! Sara Bailey, Director Lead Consultant for Youth Ministry Architects.
Sharon and Jenifer highlight the ordinary and extraordinary events that often mark the lives of young people, through thoughtful and inclusive prayers. The prayers are bound to help individuals of all ages to ponder and wonder at how God is active in the moments of their lives. Andrew Kellner, Canon for Youth Ministry, The Episcopal Diocese of PA
As a young seeker, my spiritual awareness was in many ways shaped and expanded by a small book of prayers and spiritual practices given to me at Confirmation. It is my hope that Call on Me will play a similar role as a resource and guide for young people in our own day. Frank T Griswold, XXV Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church

But also, I can't help think how wonderful this would have been to have as a teenager. There were times when I couldn't even articulate what I was feeling and this book does that. For example a prayer for Loneliness from page 71.
Jesus, I feel so alone.
I sit at school
and the world seems to
pass me by.
I lay on my bed
and am surrounded
Jesus, I feel invisible.
Everyone seems busy
and having so much fun.
Everyone had someone
to talk to and be with.
Jesus, I feel so alone.
Stay with me.
Wrap your love around me.
Be with me so I'm not so lonely.
I would commend this book to all ages as a great resource and great companion.
