Pastoral Prayers for the Hospital VisitPastoral Prayers for the Hospital Visit by Sara Webb Phillips
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading prayers from my contemporaries. The prayers are well written, have descent theology, and can help when words fail you as a spiritual care person in a difficult situation.

The book is divided into 6 sections.
1. Pastoral Prayers for Hospitalized Patients
2. Prayers with Hospital and Nursing Staff
3. Hymns Appropriate to Sing with Patients
4. Traditional Blessings, Prayers, and Scripture
5. Guided Prayers
6. Rituals

Each sections has a multitude of subsections. I was impressed with the overwhelming variety of prayers in section 1. The Author seemed to have think of everything. This is a good book for any spiritual care person to have on their shelf.
