Offering hope and comfort to those facing pressure and anxiety, Pocket Prayers for Troubled Times offers both original and traditional prayers that speak of God's presence and faithfulness in adversity.

Tackling issues not covered in many standard prayer books, it reveals the value of prayer in all circumstances and contains seven themed chapters:

Work, unemployment and money
Home life and relationships
Our broken world
Our fragile earth
In times of illness
In times of bereavement
Into God's hands

"Prayer may not 'fix' our problems, but it does change both us and the emotional context of our relationships. Prayer gives God access to our over-defended lives. Prayer lets God's Spirit permeate the bone-hard ground of our confusions." - John Pritchard
