Book Description

January 2007
Take Our Moments and Our Days is a four-week cycle of morning and evening prayer services prepared for the period in the church year between Pentecost and Advent. The services focus on the teaching and ministry of Jesus: the Lord's Prayer (week one), the Beatitudes (week two), Jesus' parables (week three), and Jesus' miracles (week four). The prayer services are designed for use by small groups of families, although they are suitable for individuals as well. The central features are: •Scripture-saturated prayer. Virtually all the words in these prayers are adapted or taken directly from the Bible. •The voice of Jesus. The words of Jesus are strikingly prominent in these services. •Anabaptist coloration. Lying behind the prayers is a pattern of themes that are especially important in the Anabaptist tradition. Published in collaboration with the Institute of Mennoite Studies at Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkhart, Indiana.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Prayer Book Aug. 26 2007
By J. Davis Sensenig - Published on Amazon.com
Take Our Moments and Our Days is an excellent prayer book for use in a group. The prayers are arranged for morning and evening prayer in a four week cycle focused on the life and ministry of Jesus Christ: Lord's Prayer, Beatitudes, Parables, Signs and Wonders. In addition to psalms and other scripture readings, there is opportunity for silence, song, and free prayers of thanksgiving and intercession in this format. The book has been helpful in sponsoring the life of discipleship in our community.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide to scripture-saturated prayer Oct. 5 2011
By Nathaniel Rhoads - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The benefits of this prayer book (and its companion volume) are many: Anabaptist coloration: themes of peacemaking, forgiveness, discipleship, and justice are prominent, as are the words of Christ; helpful organization: each prayer time has three movements (call to praise, discipleship, and intercession), which help structure our prayers and reflection; biblical: everything in this prayer book is rooted in scripture, from the invocation to the benediction; thematic unity: each prayer service develops a unified theme, which helps sharpen focus and meditation.

Excellent prayer books for both personal and corporate use.
4.0 out of 5 stars Great Prayer Guide Feb. 7 2014
By BDC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had been looking for something to give me more structure for my morning times of prayer. I like that the structure of these morning and evening prayers include scripture reading and a structured time of prayer. Each day takes you through 5-6 topics that give me just enough guidance to keep me on track, yet not so full of material that I feel I can't personalize it. For those who don't like someone telling you what to pray for (though clearly there is freedom when its just you and the Spirit), you may find this monotonous after the first 4-5 days. However, given what I was looking for, this has been a great tool.

I love this book. It allows me me to have a focused worship time everyday. It is more than a daily devotional.

We've just started using this book, but even the introduction conveys spiritual guidance, gently and compellingly.
You may want a copy for every (or every other) participant.
