In his new CD, Prayers of Hope and Healing, Liam Lawton combines selections from his popular book The Hope Prayer (G-7823, $21.95) with his original melodies, newly orchestrated by Mark Cahill. The prayers and reflections included on this recording deal with many of life's recurrent themes—joy, sorrow, growing old, birth, death, and loss, to name but a few. Each of these prayers is an invitation to enter into the beauty of God's presence, encouraging the listener to persist in prayer beyond the final notes of each supplication into their own distinctive dialogue with God.
This CD makes a great gift for anyone in need of healing prayer. It is perfect for reflection in the different “sanctuaries” of our lives-places like the car, the office, or even amidst nature during a quiet walk or respite under a tree, a blanket of stars, or the sun-drenched sky. Reflect on one prayer everyday. Use them in prayer services, private devotions, public prayer, or small Christian communities.
Author and composer Lawton reads each reflection himself; his gentle delivery and rich vocal timbre breathe compassion and life into these expressive words of inspiration and hope—lighting a pathway to peace and shepherding the soul toward rest.
