The book is a sacred resource for developing a prayer life that is rich, vibrant, and dynamic. Drawing from ancient Hebrew texts, the words of Jesus, early Church writings and practices, and The Book of Common Prayer, Joy provides a valuable handbook for those who yearn for something more.Part memoir, part spiritual guide, the book is packed with liturgy, resources, and prompts that help make ancient rituals relevant today. Complete with a music playlist, it is a guide for the practice of praying daily. Although the book was written during the pandemic—when "prayer" was one of the most frequently searched words on the internet—it has been years in the making. With the wisdom that comes from nearly forty years of teaching the Bible and praying with women, men, and children, Joy offers readers a blueprint for building an inner sanctuary, a resting place.Daily Prayer: A Modern Guide to Ancient Practices is available in hardcover and eBook from retailers worldwide. We are sincerely grateful for all of our 1st Responders & Veterans. 301 E. 24th St. (432) 267-8288 www.myersandsm­ (Between Gregg & Goliad)
