Prayers of a Person, Prayers of the People

2019 Calvin Symposium on Worship | Workshop


What does it mean for any of us as one person—a person with particular quirks and gifts and blind spots—to offer the prayers of the people? How do we voice prayers that move toward generosity without sliding into the generic? How do we craft prayers that offer up our firstfruits as writers or orators without letting them become showy? How do we pray without furthering or ignoring the divisions that run through our congregations? This workshop weighs these questions as well as explores some provisions for the person called upon to pray on behalf of all God’s people.
