Prayers for the Pew is a collection of Pastoral prayers, which were written and delivered at Stonebridge United Methodist Church in McKinney, Texas, over a period of several years. The prayers are sorted into three categories: *Seasonal Prayers (Advent, Lent, Eastertide, Pentecost etc.) *Secular Calendar Prayers (New Year’s, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, etc.) *General Prayers for the spiritual needs of a congregation. Pastors and church leaders will find this book to be a valuable resource in preparation for Sunday morning.  Even if you are not a pastor or church leader, these prayers can be used for family occasions as well as a great resource to learn how to pray. Many of the prayers in the General Prayers section simply describe what a relationship with God should look like. These prayers look to God as being the creator of all things, including our source of empowerment, hope, and love for a broken world.

As you meditate on Saint Thérèse's life, let her show you how to keep your faith when you suffer and how to find your way to God when you are lost.
