Leading Intercessions is a resource for individuals and groups involved in the important task of leading prayers in public worship. This user-friendly handbook covers a rich and broad spectrum—from traditional services, to worship with children and young people, to group prayer, to personal devotions. Each section begins with practical principles and is filled with easy-to-use ideas for ways to improve presentation and creative suggestions for enlivening the prayers. Sample prayers are included, as well as material for seasons, major festivals, and special events.

Leading Intercessions is a how-to book on preparing intercessions for many communal situations—how to write them, and then how to present them in church. With a variety of activities for getting children and adults to pray, it includes material for preparing intercessions for the full year. This handbook will stimulate the reader into his or her own explorations of intercession.

Leading Intercessions is divided into five sections with sample prayers in each section. Sections are Intercessions in Mainstream Worship, Intercessions at Festivals and Special Occasions, Intercessions in Informal Worship and Small Groups, Intercessions with Children and Young People, and Personal Intercessions.

Right Reverend John Pritchard is the Anglican bishop of Jarrow. He was archdeacon of Canterbury and, before that, warden of Cranmer Hall, Durham. He has served in parishes in Birmingham and Taunton and has been diocesan youth officer for the Bath and Wells Dioceses.
