Description of Praying the Story by Maxie Dunnam
Dunnam and Walt use the psalms as models for pastoral prayers to help a pilgrimage people encounter the Divine in worship. Praying the Story will show how corporate prayer can catalyze the life of congregations and sharpen the mission of the church.Included are more than fifty pastoral prayers adaptable for worship.Prayer excerpts: "Oh God, who, by the glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus, destroyed death and fulfilled your promise of life forevermore, grant that we may be raised with Him to newness of life and abide in Him, that peace may be ours. Make real to us the price of peace. Emblazon on our minds the wounds in Jesus' hands and side that we may never forget that He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins and the sins of the whole world."
