Overview Forms of daily prayer have been used throughout Christian history, and every Christian tradition encourages its adherents to practise regular personal prayer, calling it variously the Daily Office, the Divine Hours, Forms of Prayer, the Quiet Time or, more simply 'daily devotions'. This book draws on that rich tradition, offering daily structured prayer based on the prayers of key figures and traditions in Christian history.
One thought on “Why Pray the Hours? – Reflections on Reformation”
Over 28 days, the reader is invited to engage with and pray with the words of Augustine of Hippo, Julian of Norwich, Martin Luther, John Wesley, Soren Kierkegaard, and the Franciscan and Benedictine offices, amongst many others. The language of the prayers has been updated to make them accessible to the modern reader, but the mood, sense and underlying theology of the originals have been retained. Including newly translated Psalms and suggested daily Bible readings, this book offers a significant resource for personal prayer. However, more than this, it also offers a sense of worshipping in the wisdom and insight of the great traditions, providing an opportunity to engage personally with the whole spectrum of Christian experience.

The book says that his work is the foundation of all theology. The psalms were translated specially — although I am steeped in BCP Coverdale, it is a refreshing change. And why am I churned up inside? One psalm reading in the morning and one in the evening will complete the whole Psalter in 12 weeks. Thirteen rotations of 28 days will cover all psalms more than four times in a year. The Bible readings are set out in day cycles so that the New Testament may be read through in about a year and a half 84 weeks and the Old Testament in about two-and-a-half years.
Why Pray the Hours? – Reflections on Reformation
I was intrigued by two self-examination questions of John Wesley: Have I contradicted anyone, either where I had no reason to, or where there was no likelihood of convincing them? Have I let anyone I thought in the wrong in a trifle , have the last word? Create a free website or blog at WordPress.
