Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Prayers for Everyone: Prayers with Sacred Scripture by Joanne M. Rypma. The author’s most recent book to date is a 6 x 9 paperback in the Christian religion prayer book category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at was launched simultaneously with the book’s publication.

This prayer book offers readers an opportunity to reflect on God and their relationship with him. It will help them experience his presence and power in their life and encourage them to trust him completely in all they say and do.

The author tells about some of God’s promises and his love for each one person. Whether a person is preparing for a pastoral ministry or if just wanting to meditate on the Word of God, these prayers will assist on their spiritual journey and bring them closer to Him.

Scripture passages from the Old and New Testaments are included in these prayers. The readings used on weekends in church for the Liturgical Years A, B and C each have their own prayer in this book.

Readers will find that through prayers their hearts will be opened up to God’s love in such a way that they will help them grow in holiness. Author Rypma says, “Through the night and through the day, my heart and mind are searching for the way. Rest in the heart of Jesus and let his truth guide us through the mysteries of life. Each day let us celebrate the gift of life God has given us.”
