Now and Forever is a prayer resource based on the Revised Common Lectionary and is adaptable to lectionaries in Lutheran Service Book, Evangelical Lutheran Worship, Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal (1993) and Christian Worship: Hymnal (2021). Also usable with Episcopal and Roman Catholic Lectionaries.
The prayers, all newly composed, are written in classic collect form and find their themes in the readings for each Sunday in the lectionary. This book gives additional options for the Prayer of the Day/Opening Prayer. These prayers may also be used for concluding petitions in the Prayer of the Church (Prayers of Intercession or Prayers of the People) or may be used as closing prayers that fit thematically with the readings of the day. Pastors, lectors and worship planners may find this to be a valuable resource for prayers in the worship service.
