Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The prayers of our fathers,

our leaders, and ourselves –

 the perfect prayers for today

From my personal journey with prayer was born this daily compilation of prayers from classic and contemporary sources, from poems, hymns, and spiritual songs, a fresh translation/paraphrase of Scriptures, and a final prayer called “A Prayer for Today.”  I invite you to use these prayers daily to discover anew the intimacy with our Father promised through prayer.

 ~ Kurt Bjorklund

 

“Kurt Bjorkland has done us an important service in collecting prayers from men and women across the ages. These prayers will help us to deepen our communion with the One who treasure the words and longings of His people. I thank Kurt for this book, and warmly commend it as a guide for us on the journey of prayer.”

This little sampling gives me great hopes for the full book that will be coming soon. There are so many quote-able sayings, rhymes, and prayers in this little book, that it leaves me wanting more!

The book reads like a devotional. It starts with a scripture, goes into a prayer from a well known saint, pastor, or the author himself. Then there's a section for you, the reader to think about what you've read and pray your own prayer accordingly.

Prayer is a greatly neglected portion of our own personal "trinity:" Bible Reading, Prayer, and Bible Teaching. This book helps us to undo that tragic neglect, while also allowing us to be a voyeur into the private lives and prayer journals of many great people of faith.

If your prayers have become so repetitive that you have trouble focusing on them, I recommend giving this sampler a try. Not only is the format helpful, but it is also interesting to observe the prayers of others through the ages. I like this book, and maybe you will too. Thanks to the author for his excellent research and compilation.

While I would love to see the full book instead of a sampler, this book is a wonderful invitation to begin a deeper prayer life, and covers a full month of prayers. As a pastor who travels, I enjoy having this resource to pull out and to focus my mind on God.

It explains types of prayers and includes a combination of both contemporary and centuries old prayers.

This is a very excellent approach to a devotional. It is especially interesting to read quotes from saints of the past and see how relevant their thoughts are for today's living. Great insight into their use for me for today!

I collect prayer books, and use them in my devotions. Often I am at a loss for words, and find that praying someone else's prayer helps. Prayers for Today takes prayers from many sources, with Scripture passages, and at the end a kind of guided prayer to help one start to pray more personal thoughts. I have borrowed some of these prayers for use in the Sunday liturgy at my Congregational church in Massachusetts, and they have enriched our worship. I hope there will be a second volume.

Started with the sampler, so glad the entire book now available on Kindle. It has
been a great addition to my morning quiet times. This was a great book to have on
hand as I was sitting with a friend who is very sick in the hospital. The prayers
were very comforting and encouraging.

I have been reading Prayers for Today for a few weeks now and am finding the book to be an excellent resource for times of prayer. For nearly a decade I've practiced daily times of devotions through scripture reading, prayer and reflection. Over the years I found very few resources that were of much help. Prayers for Today is one of the first that has been genuinely beneficial. There are five things that set this book apart from other devotionals and have made it useful to me:

1. Scripture focused - each day has accompanying scripture that focuses our attention on God's word before giving us prayers to consider.

2. Depth & accessibility - Bjorklund writes and collects prayers as a theologian and a pastor. The prayers throughout the book are deep in that they do not focus merely on surface issues but attack the heart of the problems we struggle with: pride, fear, satisfaction, identity, etc.

3. Variety - the prayers cover a variant of areas and do not feel repetitive. The prayers are numerous enough that by the time one starts over with day 1, the prayers will still feel fresh and challenging.

4. Diversity - the prayers come from a diversity of voices throughout the ages. They span from the days of the apostolic fathers to the pastors and theologians of today.

5. Length - the daily readings are short enough to make it possible to continue a regular bible reading plan.

I highly recommend Prayers for Today to anyone who has been in the habit of prayer and reading for many years or is just trying out the practice for the first time.

I struggle with prayer and feel very blessed to have come across this book. I've been using it daily for two months. Rather than telling me "You should pray more" or explaining the many reasons why I should pray, Rev. Kurt Bjorklund provides a collection of daily prayers that have drawn me into wanting to pray more.

For example, intercessory prayer has often been a "should" for me, as opposed to a heart-felt desire. Yet, I'm increasingly finding that as I pray the prayers in this book, I feel led to continue in prayer. I truly want to pray for the concerns of others.

I highly recommend this book to those who struggle with prayer and those who are deeply committed to the daily practice of prayer. If your experience is like mine, this beautiful, gentle collection of prayers will open your heart to God if you let it.
