this is so good. so often we struggle to pray or what to pray and it keeps us from praying. Scripture is the great antidote! bask in it! read it! meditate on it! I am enjoying reading through this often.
For anyone who enjoys the "full" Divine Hours, this pocket edition is great for vacation or retreat take-alongs

Excellent, short devotions to read through out the day.
A wonderful traveling companion size of daily offices that captures Tickle's special approach to this life of prayer, The Pocket Edition is lean, but rich in the textual gems chosen. I will now also recommend this edition as an introductory way to start praying the christian offices for those considering it, because it is so easy to use.

While I don't pray all the hours, I've found this is a lovely way to begin and end each day. It's especially calming in the morning when I know it's going to be one of those days. I've used both this book and one for Advent/Christmas. This one has the benefit of repetition so over a few weeks, I found I'd memorized much of it, but I prefer the seasonal one, purely because the verses and readings change over the days.

I love the rhythm of praying the hours, even though, as a Protestant, it's not really part of my culture. These books make it so easy! I love these books.
These prayers are like breathing. Phyllis Tickle reminds us to pause and take a breath of the Lord Jesus' presence often during each day of the week.
I enjoy this format more than the larger editions and I will probably use this edition on a regular basis rather than using the seasonal ones.

This is a pocket size version of the Divine Hours prayer books. Great for travel for one week, wash, rinse, repeat.
