Some of Sr. Joyce Rupp’s most perennially popular books have been collections of her original prayers, blessings, poems, and reflections. In Prayer Seeds, the bestselling author and retreat leader offers almost a hundred new selections on a variety of themes such as the feasts and seasons of the liturgical year, compassion, ministry, difficult times, and important events—all suitable for personal or group prayer.
In 2000, she collected her prayers in the book Out of the Ordinary. In Prayer Seeds, Sr. Joyce follows up with about a hundred never-before-published prayers written since the publication of the first collection. The prayers are organized thematically.
