Clouds and Glory: Year A
David Adam believes that the way to get the most out of worship on Sundays is to pray regularly on weekdays. Here, to help us in this duty and joy of preparation, he offers prayers that link with the readings for each Sunday and great festival of the Christian year. The prayers employ the Celtic emphasis and style that many people have found helpful in David's earlier books. They will be equally as helpful for those who do not use a weekly lectionary as for those who do.
The author sees clearly the reality in our lives both of the clouds—of sadness, misfortune, and pain—and the glory to be found in God. He invites us to "use these prayers as a vehicle to get out of the clouds and greyness to where you get a glimpse of glory."
