Ted Loder can write, no doubt about it. But with Guerrillas, the Spirit speaks through him loudly and clearly. This book of prayers is unlike any other I have ever read. Mr. Loder's prayers give us permission to speak as freely to our God as we would like, to use our weak and imperfect selves to achieve great things. Your heart and soul will never be the same once you have used this book. And do use it. It will help those who have forgotten how to talk to God, to once again do so. It will guide those who never tried to talk with God, to make a stab at it. Those who are more comfortable will traditional prayer styles will find these prayers a challenge. But what would life be without a challenge?

The ritual of prayer is as old as man. We all have our own words, we recite bible prayer and dictated prayers from various religions. But Loder's Guerillas is truly a refreshing collage of prayers that are contemporary and yet soulful. They direct our minds, but give us plenty of room to make the prayer our own thought. For those who shy away from organized religion or who are faint of heart in searching for the right prayer, Loder's book is a kind companion.

Gut-wrenching, soul-searching, heartfelt, uplifting, calming...the prayers in this book are all that and more. They are written in a simple honest language with an easy flow to them. No matter who you are there are at least several prayers that will deeply touch the real you and decidedly affect your relationship with God. There are prayers for all occasions with titles like "Sometimes It Just Seems to be Too Much", "Thank you for Each Moment", and "Pry Me Off Dead Center". I have never read a book of prayers before that had so many that personally touched me.

One can really get a sense of how to pray again through this book. It shows the struggles and joys of the human condition. It made God appear closer and more real to me after reading a Man of the Cloth's prayers. The words and concepts are simple; the categories suitable for reference. I kept it by the bedside for several years, and now I am passing it on to my friends who share a spiritual journey through talking to God.

It is not unusual for a church meeting here at Foundry United Methodist Church to begin with someone reading a prayer from Ted Loder's "Guerrillas of Grace." I am especially delighted that our Finance Committee chair has used Ted's prayers again and again to set the spiritual context for her committee's work.
Here at Foundry, our laity are looking for ways to connect their commitment to social justice with their spiritual lives and our biblical heritage. They are looking for spiritual authenticity that goes beyond both superficial piety and simplistic secularity. Ted's prayers do this, so our folk receive them gladly.
This is a helpful book for church leaders to use in their spiritual lives.

I own or have owned several of these. I have it in paper, now on my Kindle (WHICH is a terrible set up by the way...unless you know the book nearly by heart, the reading on Kindle rots and does detract from the paper method of delivering the lines in a much more artistic layout and flow).
Anyway, I DO recommend the paper version.
That said, this is a go-to in times of distress. His prayers are raw, human and touch deeply the pain and frustration we little humans can come up against. They bring me to smile, to rejoice, to re-trust, and through tears.

Enjoy.

I've given countless copies of this book as gifts, and it is a staple in my monthly group spiritual direction gathering. The author's prayers give voice to so many things the rest of us sense and experience but don't always know how to wrap words around.

Gorgeous and heartfelt prayers for the journey. Each page is filled with a prayer that could be applied to every step of the journey, whether it is a good one, or a more difficult one. I would recommend this to pastors, lay leaders, chaplains, or just anyone looking for prayers, devotionals or a good read!
