This work is divided into various parts. The first part is a study on prayer, and the later parts are sample prayers. I believe Benson is either a Catholic or Anglican priest. At first glance (me being Protestant), I would say that I dislike the idea of “canned prayers” altogether. After reading through some of these prayers though, I began to realize that Benson focuses this work on assembling preciously worded prayers for every occasion. I think the meaningless repetition of prayer is useless and a sin, but I must admit that some of these prayers are nicely worded for public services or for certain occasions when “you just don’t know how to pray for somebody.” See 117 A Prayer for Lunatics for example. Excellent little prayer.
