This second volume is for the seasons of the Christian year (Advent through Pentecost). Its distinctive Anabaptist flavor is evident in the predominance of Jesu'' voice, space for communal reflection on Scripture, and the choices of Bible readings-it offers a way of prayer that lets the voice of Jesus pervade the whole day.

"Praying together like this really bonds our prayer group, and connects us with the life of the congregation. We sense that we are supporting the pastoral care and the teaching ministry of the church."
—Noon prayers group, Prairie St Mennonite, Elkhart, Indiana

"I especially find the 'Call' structure of the prayers meaningful and value the grounding in Scripture, especially in Jesus' words."
—Weldon Nisly, pastor, Seattle (Wash.) Mennonite Church

"With its biblical words it speaks so gently yet forcefully of the love and compassion of God, the ministry and servanthood of his Son, Jesus Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit."
—Leslie Rafaniello, Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey

"I've been loving the prayer book. I have used it in our peace prayers group, in small group, in a group retreat, and mostly in my daily prayers as an individual. Every time I have opened the book, I have loved it."
—Tina Mast Burnett, Akron, Pennsylvania

"I appreciate the repetition and find that some of the repeated phrases are really sticking with me and coming to me at other times of the day. The structure of the intercessions reminds me to broaden my prayers from just the nearest or most urgent."
—Brenda Meyer, pastor, Benton Mennonite Church, Goshen, Ind.

"I like how it helps me memorize certain portions of Scripture . . . I find using Take Our Moments and Our Days healthy for my spiritual life."
—David Vroege, pastor, All Nations Christian Reformed Church, Halifax, NS

"It helps me to pray even when I have times when I don't want to pray."
—Eric Fels, Logan City, Australia

"I am not Anabaptist, but I find Take Our Moments and Our Days an excellent resource for both individual devotions and corporate prayer meetings."
—Paul V. Sorrentino, coordinator for religions life & Christian fellowship advisor, Amherst College

"When I began using Take Our Moments and Our Days I immediately felt at home. I felt connected God, to Scripture and the greater Christian community . . . it has helped me pray in ways that are meaningful and with words that express my faith journey."
—Carrie Martens, former children's pastor, North Kildonan Mennonite Brethren Church, Winnipeg, Man., now a seminary student

"This second volume of Take Our Moments and Our Days covers the liturgical year from Advent through Pentecost. While these morning and evening prayers are designed for group use, allowing space for communal reflection on scripture and singing, they can be adapted for individual use as well. In keeping with the Radical Reformation tradition, the scripture texts give prominence to Jesus' own words, and the note of discipleship is sounded throughout. The prayers have a threefold form: praise, listen, respond. Opportunities for intercessory prayer are given—for ourselves and those dear to us, our community, the church, the world and for other concerns."
--Christian Century
