With searing honesty, warmth, and kindness, these prayers verbalize feelings the author recognizes as universal, but often unexpressed. Drawn from a collection of prayers first published by Fortress Press in the 1970s, this little book in its newly revised form continues to speak to the "impossible days" that beset us all. Includes NRSV Scripture texts, a publisher's note, and one new prayer for contemporary times. A partial list of the prayers includes: Prayer to Admit Mistakes, Prayer for Days When You Are Tired of Others, Prayer after a Family Breakup and more.
Paul Geres is the pen name for the author, who is now 85 years old, married and a grandfather of four.
