    The commentary at the beginning of this text was encouraging but nothing revolutionary if your family prays together in any way Coming from a church that emphasizes extemporaneous prayers I'm looking forward to incorporating some of the traditional written prayers from the latter section of this book into our family prayer times and my personal ones I could really use some help with something helpful to pray in the morning beyond So tired Please make the kids go back to sleepYou should know going in to this book that the authors draw from both Protestant and Catholic traditions as well as some Jewish Native American Hindu Buddhist etc prayers I'm comfortable editing that to build a group of prayers that fits my theology if you aren't this isn't your book
