Product DescriptionThis book, The Work of Your Hands, may be small in size but is huge in the inspiration and beautiful blessings and prayers it offers. The author, Diana Macalintal, uses her "poetic prayers and prayerful poems" to lift up in prayer ordinary and extraordinary moments of daily life and to help see the presence of God in all those experiences. Prayers include "Prayers for the Earth, Prayer When Mass Feels Empty, Prayer Before Trick or Treating" while blessings include "Blessing of a Soldier Home From War, Blessing of All Creation, Blessing of Christmas Cards Before Sending" among others. Through these prayers and blessings found in The Work of Your Hands Macalintal hopes to "wake our longings, confess our fears and sing of our joys". The handy and convenient index in the front lists the prayers and the occasions upon which you may wish to use them. The prayers and blessings can be used for particular situations and experiences or you can simply choose a prayer and sit with it as you meditate on the lovely images and thoughts being presented. If you have a hard time talking with God in prayer, The Work of Your Hands will help you find the words to express your feelings and needs.
