Overview

Compelled by the belief that a large number of Christians want to come to God with others’ needs, John Pritchard has created this follow-up to his hugely successful volumes, The Intercessions Handbook and The Second Intercessions Handbook. In a gentle, accessible, style he offers ‘starter’ ideas and introductory material to help those who lead intercessions in public worship and small groups, and aims to open the reader’s imagination to enrich their own style of praying.

Everyday language, images and experiences are used in each of the three main sections. The first, looking at intercessions in mainstream worship, offers prayers

for each of the 12 months
for major festivals and their seasons
for special days like Mothering Sunday
on themes such as light, storms and fear

The second section provides intercessions for use in informal worship and small groups, while the third, focusing on personal payers, includes a section for extroverts.

Praise for The Intercessions Handbook:

‘A wake-up call to all those who . . . need to find encouragement, freshness, balance and perseverance in this work of grace.’
Methodist Recorder
