from his book, A BOOK OF UNCOMMON PRAYER
Lord, help me this day to shut up, listen up, open up and lighten up. You have a lot more to show and tell me than I have to show and tell you. Please be patient with me – allow me a glimpse, give me a hint of what is really going on around me as I walk and watch and wonder and work throughout this unfolding day. I know I need to worry a lot less – I need to stop overreacting- to be calmer and not to insist on being special or right. The world does not revolve around me nor am I its or anyone else’s savior. I must learn to look up and out, not just in. I must try harder to be wiser, nicer, less grouchy, a more sensitive human being. Please help me pray my life and live my prayers.
Rev. Alan Houghton

How can one acquire this book of prayers by Rev. Houghton? Thank you
How can I find a copy of Rev. Houghton’s book, The Book of Uncommen Prayer?
It’s available at Amazon, Ebay, Christian Book, Thrift Books to name a few. Thanks for the visit. I first heard the prayer offered by Randy Hollerith on a National Cathedral YouTube service.
I’m trying to find the book but there are so many books by that title. I don’t see Alan houghton listed. Can you send a photo of cover? Thanks so much. I too discovered him through Randy Hollerith.
I too am trying to find the book.
Me too. It’s not at Amazon.
