About-

In thought and word and deed,
Identify with the Christ
Known through broken bread and shared cup
Through love of God and neighbor. Amen.
--sample benediction from Thanks Be to God

Building on the success of his earlier book, Hear Our Prayer: Resources for Worship and Devotions, and believing that Christians should experience worship as vocational rather than vacational, Rainsley writes these prayers and parables in a manner in which readers and listeners can recognize God in the midst of the ordinary.

This resource can be used in worship or in Sunday bulletins and church newsletters. It includes:
- calls to worship
- opening prayers
- words of assurance
- pastoral prayers
- prayers of dedication
- benedictions
- prayers for special occasions
- parables
