500 Prayers for Young People: Prayers for a new generation
Here are 500 prayers for every occasion. Prayers for relationships; for problems; for saying thank you; for crying out in anger or pain; for times of spiritual dryness; for times of starting again. They can be used for worship together, and for worship alone. They can open up new possibilities, and help to bring a bad day to a better close. The 500 prayers will be split into thematic sections, including: Seasonal (Including: Christmas, Easter, Pentecost); Thanksgiving; Praise and worship; School (including exams, bullying, relationship with teachers); Relationships (including friendships, sex, and boyfriend/girlfriend); Justice (including prayers about the environment, poverty etc); Knowing God (including prayers for spiritual gifts); Pain and problems (including bereavement and illness). The prayers themselves will be numbered but continually varied - featuring a mix of ancient prayers (approx 20%), and prayers written by the author and by young people. They will be written in a variety of styles, and will be preceded by a short introduction where necessary. There will be an extensive index and features on developing a prayer life.
