This second volume is for the seasons of the Christian year (Advent through Pentecost). Its distinctive Anabaptist flavor is evident in the predominance of Jesus’ voice, space for communal reflection on Scripture, and the choices of Bible readings—it offers a way of prayer that lets the voice of Jesus pervade the whole day.
“Praying together like this really bonds our prayer group, and connects us with the life of the congregation. We sense that we are supporting the pastoral care and the teaching ministry of the church.”—Noon prayers group, Prairie Street Mennonite Church, Elkhart, Indiana
