We frequently stumble into rough places which need to be made smooth. People abuse people. Streets are unsafe. Values are determined by majority vote. Ethics are shaded by The "bottom line."

From the prayer for the Second Sunday of Advent

"People find worship meaningful when it touches them on the level of their daily life," writes Dennis Koch. "Our prayers, our music, our preaching and teaching must be sensitive to where people are, so that they can be led to a deeper level in their faith."

Here are over 60 contemporary prayers based on the lectionary gospel reading of the day. These prayers are short and easy to read. Each is suitable for morning worship, church bulletins, newsletters or personal devotion.

This special collection follows the CSS tradition of providing creative worship resources for congregations. Contemporary Lectionary Prayers, Cycle C, is volume two of a three-book set.

A back-of-the-book index helps users find prayers by scripture text.
