  • Uses an ancient prayer in contemporary, accessible ways
  • May be used as Lenten or Advent guide

The Sarum Prayer is a remarkably accessible ancient prayer with contemporary appeal—memorable, physical, genderless, and mystical. It is suited for use throughout the day, invoking a God who inhabits all things, including our senses. Like the Serenity Prayer, it appeals to those relying on God to get through their day.

This book offers a step-by-step introduction to the prayer that fosters improved conscious contact with God. With forty short meditations, it draws the reader into the different aspects of the prayer each day and can serve as an easyaccess Lenten guide. These short essays are designed to mediate an enhanced experience through daily use.

Though field-tested as a Lenten prayer guide, it is a devotional suitable for any time of year, making connection with God possible even to those not steeped in a religious tradition.

Audience: Recovery groups, those seeking conscious contact with God, practitioners of The Divine Hours™

Ken has written in the field of spirituality, most notably Mystically Wired: Exploring New Realms in Prayer (Thomas Nelson, 2009) which Phyllis Tickle called "hands down ... the best book on prayer I have ever read."
