Just what is pastoral prayer all about? When we pray for others and ourselves, what are we attempting to do? As David Sparks explains, as pastoral prayers we are about bringing ourselves into right relationship with God, both as individuals and as a faith community. As pastoral prayers, we are about expressing our compassion for suffering humanity, and fulfilling God's intention of establishing God's realm on earth. Pastoral prayers are also about being involved in the answers to our prayers.

There is no trying to persuade God to do what we ourselves could do with some energy and effort here! Sparks writes his prayers to awaken in us an awareness of where to put our energy and use our faith to bring about God's kingdom on earth. The prayers cover local and worldwide events, individual and congregational concerns. They are lectionary-based and responsive and can be easily adapted to particular circumstances and used in a variety of settings.

David Sparks has served for thirty years with the United Church of Canada, mostly in Thunder Bay, Ontario, and was for five years a minister in the United Reformed Church of England and Wales. For the best part of that time he has been writing prayers and hymns for public worship. Sparks has led workshops on various aspects of public prayer, and has been a workshop leader at Worship Matters, the national gathering of worship leaders. David has retired, with wife Kathy, to Summerland, British Columbia, and is currently serving the United Church congregation of Okanagan Falls near Penticton.
