An excellent devotional. The prayers in here are styled after the older Lutheran book of prayer (1923, I think?), and it shows. They are Gospel-focused and intended to shift the attention from ourselves and our own righteousness and on to Christ. The book also contains various other things (catechism questions and the like) that are of more interest to Lutherans than us non-liturgical types, but still a useful and interesting book.
I use this all the time. It's an excellent resource. The one gripe I have is that I wish there were more prayers for other things in the book; such as table prayers and such. For what is in here though, it's excellent.
