Prayers from Riverside, Updated (Thorne, ed.)
The Force of Prayer
Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick, founding first senior minister of The Riverside Church in New York City, once declared that "prayer is a tremendous spiritual force." Those words underline the legacy of a church inspired by the Holy Spirit.
This updated collection includes new prayers from current ministers, including the female clergy on staff and a previously published prayer from past senior minister, James A. Forbes, Jr., as well as new prayers for special times and holidays.
