  • subtitles Product description

    This clearly presented guide, for clergy and lay people who lead the prayers of intercession at the Eucharist, will meet a very real need in our worship. Paul Iles begins by asking what intercession is, how it relates to Christian belief, and addresses many of the problems that people encounter with prayer. He goes on to consider the practical implications for those who exercise a ministry of leading intercession, giving practical hints and tips about preparation, how to construct the prayers, and a useful list of advice of what will hinder and what will help the prayers of intercession come alive as a particular moment of attentiveness within the full flow of the liturgy. The book also contains examples of prayer from various sources, musical settings of people's responses, and suggestions of other sources of intercession prayer. Paul Iles is Precentor and Canon Residentiary of Hereford Cathedral.
