An Honest, Prayerful Approach to the Difficulty of Ordinary Life

How can we trust God in the dark?

Tish Harrison Warren, author of Liturgy of the Ordinary, explores themes of human vulnerability, suffering, and God's seeming absence. When she navigated a time of doubt and loss, the prayer was grounding for her. She writes that practices of prayer "gave words to my anxiety and grief and allowed me to reencounter the doctrines of the church not as tidy little antidotes for pain, but as a light in darkness, as good news." In Prayer in the Night, you'll find:

  • An exploration of the real struggles of everyday life, framed around a nighttime prayer of Compline
  • Discussion questions to jumpstart group conversations, and
  • Practices that offer practical, achievable ways to put Tish's wisdom into action.

Where do we find comfort when we lie awake worrying or weeping in the night? This book offers a prayerful and frank approach to the difficulties in our ordinary lives at work, at home, and in a world filled with uncertainty.
