Format: Paperback
Prayer is one of those subjects that is central to Christian life, but is rather a vague concept. In this book, Karl Barth shares some of his communal prayers from various Sunday services.

These prayers can provide a good starting point if your seeking to explore the concept of or to enhance your practice of communal prayer.

Btw, read the forward. Barth explains a bit of his own development in communal prayer and his reasons behind this book. The forward really does add extra meaning to this book.

I have only been preaching for about two years, and his prayers are really helpful as a model. I have been writing out my prayers now and moving away from what I read from Karl Barth, but they gave me a good example. They are kind of long, but you can see the pastoral heart behind them.

Barth's prayers show a side of the great theologian that helps us read and understand his other works, such as the Dogmatics.
