To people of faith, prayer is as important as breathing. It connects us to the very Creator of the universe, the One who gives us life eternally. Sometimes, we feel the urge to connect with God on a stronger level. Praying isn’t a natural action for some, so they need a little help to say what are the right words and to connect more efficiently. Many prayer books have also been written about saints and the many prayers they’ve compiled over the centuries.

10) Valley of Vision (Leather): A Collection of Puritan Prayers and Devotions Edited by: by
- Book Summary: The strength of Puritan character and life lay in prayer and meditation. In this practice the spirit of prayer was regarded as of first importance and the best form of prayer, for living prayer is the characteristic of genuine spirituality. Yet prayer is also vocal and may therefore on occasions be written. Consequently in the Puritan tradition there are many written prayers and meditations which constitute an important corpus of inspiring devotional literature. Too often ex tempore prayer lacks variety, order and definiteness. The reason for this lies partly in a neglect of due preparation. It is here that the care and scriptural thoroughness which others found necessary in their approach to God may be of help. This book has been prepared not to ‘supply’ prayers but to prompt and encourage the Christian as he treads the path on which others have gone before.

(BCP) Book of Common Prayer
The Book of Common Prayer get’s it’s own section and rightfully so. It is used by millions around the world on a daily basis which has been the case for hundreds of years.
The Book of Common Prayer
- Book Summary: This source of strength and solace for millions of Christian clergy and laypeople throughout the world can be a companion for your own spiritual journey.For centuries, Christians of different traditions and seekers from various backgrounds have found strength for their spiritual journey in the Book of Common Prayer (BCP). First composed in 1549 by Thomas Cranmer, Henry VIII’s Archbishop of Canterbury, the BCP, alongside Shakespeare’s works and the King James Bible, helped shape the English language. Today almost eighty million Anglican Christians throughout the world use the BCP in public worship, and countless people―Anglican and otherwise―use it in their private devotional life.In this unique presentation of selections―organized by themes such as “Blessings in Times of Joy and Pain,” “Called to Serve” and “Praise and Petition”―with facing-page commentary, C. K. Robertson offers fascinating insights into the history and heritage of the BCP. He also makes available the riches of this spiritual treasure chest for all who are interested in deepening their life of prayer, building stronger relationships and making a difference in the world.
- Book Reviews:
My BCP measures about 7¾” x 5½ “x 1¾,” so it is a perfect size for me. It has a durable cloth-over-board hard cover that feels very solid in my hands. The binding appears to be sewn rather than glued, which makes it more durable and allows me to lay it flat when opened. The paper is smooth but not glossy, and of sufficient weight to make it reasonably wrinkle- and tear-resistant. The text is set in a font that’s very crisp, clear, and easy to read. The book’s page edges are not gilded, and there are no marker ribbons.
I am very pleased with my new Book of Common Prayer. Although it is not a substitute for the Bible, which is the cornerstone of my Christian faith, it is a very useful guide for me in my daily prayer and meditation. Highly recommended.
