Based on the ancient office of compline, Prayer at Night's Approaching uses gentle language and offers material helpful to those wishing to pray regularly and reflectively, and looking for something that resonates clearly with their experience. This book provides material for prayer for each day of the week, together with some variations for special days and seasons. In this convenient pocket-size edition the print is easy on the eye and there is a helpful ribbon in the hardback.
In the Foreword, Sister Jane of the Community of the Love of God describes Jim Cotter's version as "authentic because in it the wisdom of the centuries is filled out with contemporary Christian experience of God as 'Life-giver, Pain-bearer, Love-maker' [...] and the awareness that each of us who tries to pray is part of the human whole." This new edition includes a practical 'How to use' section which enables those unfamiliar with this ancient form of prayer to find a way into making it their own. Above all Prayer at Night's Approaching is a well-loved classic in a beautiful edition, and to quote from Sister Jane again, it is "sharp as well as consoling in its reality and relevance".
