Following the annual procession of the seasons with prayers that are appropriate for personal devotion as well as for use in leading worship, these new ways to call on God will feed your soul and inspire you to fi nd your own fresh language for thanksgiving, praise, intercession and petition, whether in your community or personal spiritual life.
