From booting up the computer or driving a car, to pregnancy, childbirth, and sending out a child in shared custody, this collection offers simple prayers for living into and through the joys, anxieties, and complications of modern life. Traditional prayers -- on waking, table graces, and preparing for sleep -- are included, too.

Phillips is equally at home with lament and thanksgiving; prayers for recovery from a robbery or divorce mingle with thanks for healing and the ordinary ticking of a clock.

Prayers include: A Child's Breakfast Prayer, Dashboard Prayer, At the Computer, For Watching Television, Writing Checks, Prayer for a Marriage Bed, Delivery Room Prayer, For a Couple Longing to Conceive, A Prayer for Imperfect Parents, Out of This Muddle, After a Robbery.
