Praying the Way with Matthew, Mark, Luke & John

Praying the Way

Dear URC Devotions

The Rev’d Terry Hinks, one of our regular writers, and minister of Trinity Church High Wycombe and Cores End URC, has written a book of reflections entitled Praying the Way with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.  This is published by the Bible Reading Fellowship and priced at £10.99.  It is a collection of prayers and reflections, aimed at helping people enter into the stories and teaching of the four Gospels and to pray with them. 
General Secretary, John Proctor writes: 

‘Terry Hinks has thought and written over many years about ways that the gospels can inspire and inform our praying. Now this mature collection of prayers draws on important texts from across the four gospels and from all around the themes of the Christian year. The primary tone is reflective, coming near to God in measured, thoughtful praise, and with deep confidence and hope. The language is both reverent and accessible, moving yet not complicated. These prayers would work very well in a church service, and would be equally helpful in a small housegroup or in private devotion. This book deserves to circulate widely, and I suspect that many copies will become well-worn in the course of the years. This is a resource to return to, time and again, for one’s own faith and in the service of others.’
Deputy General Secretary, Richard Church also commends the book

Terry writes with freshness and honesty to all those who, like him, are trying to walk Christ’s way. Like a seasoned traveller, he crafts prayers – inspired by the four gospels – that act as a way marker for his fellow travellers. I warmly commend this resource to enable us all to pray the way before turning back to the challenges that await us on the road.
I think Terry crafts thoughtful and useful prayers which help us better understand the Jesus presented in each of the Gospels. The book is very helpful for personal devotional use, but also an invaluable resource for leaders of worship.  You can order the book here.

with every good wish
