Creeds, candles, silence, and ancient spiritual practices are gaining understanding and popularity among young people. Youth are realizing that there are treasures in tradition. As Morning Breaks and Evening Sets is a tool for unearthing, dusting off, and tapping into these treasures.

As Morning Breaks and Evening Sets provides an introduction to the biblical form of prayer known as the Liturgy of the Hours--a rich and time-tested way for Christians to pray with the whole community of faith and out of the source of its hope, the inspired Scriptures. This type of prayer immerses believers in the poetic word of God found in the psalms, scriptural canticles, and scriptural readings.

As Morning Breaks and Evening Sets contains fifteen prayer experiences designed to put the hearts and minds of adolescents in touch with the sacred. This is a book of simple yet profound prayer experiences that speak to the everyday experiences of young people. In this book young people experience the venerable practice of using the Scriptures to offer praise, thanksgiving, and intercession.
