E. Stanley Jones once wrote, "Pray by the clock if you cannot pray by the heartbeat. In doing so you will be fixing a prayer habit. . . . For, once the habit is fixed, the person is inwardly set prayer as a life attitude."
Prayers for Ordinary Days is composed of 365 short prayers for both those forming a prayer habit and those inwardly set for prayer as a life attitude. Each daily prayer is accompanied by a Scripture verse, hymn excerpt, or quote that extends the spirit in which it might be offered by God.
Over the course of a year, these humble prayers will elevate your vision and spur you on toward a deeper and more meaningful spiritual growth.
