  1. I have been following you blog in my Google reader, and have starred your prayer suggestions. This one in particular is my favorite.

    Just now, I figured out that you and Prayerworks Studio are one in the same. (Sometimes it takes me awhile to catch on.)

    Have you ever considered writing a book of prayers for use with the Anglican Rosary? I know there are some available, but not many. I think I have all of them.

    • I am really gratified to know that the devotions have been meaningful for you. And I agree with you about the Trinity Prayer. The very process of writing it was helpful for me to think about the relationship of the three persons of God and their relationship with each other and with the world.

      And I’m flattered by your suggestion about the book. We’ll see how this practice of writing a weekly devotion goes. If the devotions prove to be meaningful for people then I would love that opportunity. Have you used “Praying with Beads” by Nan Lewis Doerr? I have really benefitted from their devotions through the liturgical year.
