Description

In this timely book of candid, powerful, and thought-provoking prayers, William Cleary gives courage and hope to those who find it difficult to connect with the divine in the midst of uncertainty. Cleary's newest work is an engaging expression of faith in a God who often seems entirely "other"—and it recognizes that true faith is not bought cheaply. We Side with the Morning provides 365 prayers on subjects ranging from doubt, social injustice, and the inevitability of death—to joy, peace, and the mystery of a loving, personal God who hears the prayers of each person.

Praise

"Excellent introduction ... is itself worth the price of this book."

"Here is a book of an entire year of daily prayers that are door openers to silence and reflection. Cleary's use of new names for God creatively make them in themselves two-word prayers, as in, 'O God of the have-nots and the voiceless.' His prayers courageously wrestle with darkness, religious confusion, and God's inexplicable ways. His excellent introduction on how to pray is itself worth the price of this book."

Edward Hays, Author of Prayers for a Planetary Pilgrim

"Will appeal to seekers and skeptics."

"Cleary's calendar of prayers is for those who want to start praying in a new key. It will appeal to seekers and skeptics, and to those for whom the institutional church has not felt like a welcoming home, but who continue to yearn for a language with which to name the Divine. His suggestions on how to pray and his insights into the life of prayer are accessible, useful, intimate, and moving. Do not skip the introduction!"
