The Pastor At Prayer is a devotional resource designed to assist pastors in their prayer life, strengthen them in their ministry, and provide basic readings and a framework for daily prayer and meditation on God's Word.

  • A Lutheran, pastoral, devotional prayer guide, centered in the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions.
  • A comprehensive reading of the Scriptures and the Confessions forms the heart of the resource.
  • This revision presents all the prayers in contemporary style, and updates all referenced texts to those currently available.


“The Pastor at Prayer is a faithful resource that has shaped the devotional life of LCMS pastors for generations. How wonderful to see it refreshed and offered anew. Those of us who cut our devotional teeth on Kraus will be happy to see a delightful blend of old and new.”

Rev. Bart Day, Executive Director of National Mission, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod
“What a great joy to have Kraus’ classic Pastor at Prayer updated and revised for a new generation! Keyed to LSB and the Treasury of Daily Prayer, this little volume will be a huge blessing to today’s pastors as they seek to grow in their life of prayer. Yet another CPH home run!”

—William Weedon, LCMS Director of Worship and Chaplain of the International Center

“Originally published in 1983 by an insightful and well-loved seminary professor, this little handbook of pastoral devotion is once again available to a new generation of pastors. Like its predecessor it bears the imprint of the sainted George Kraus’ lively engagement with the Holy Scriptures and the Lutheran liturgical tradition. At home in the Bible and shaped by the liturgy, prayers, and hymns of the church, Kraus’ passion was that pastors might be enlivened by God’s Word and Spirit and so have joy in the service of Christ’s holy people. A fruit of that passion was The Pastor at Prayer. The revised edition contains all the rich elements of the original with updated plans for reading the Scriptures the Book of Concord devotionally. This new edition features updated material from Lutheran Service Book with daily lectionaries geared toward both the three-year lectionary and the historic one-year lectionary, as well as including the beautiful collects from Luther’s co-worker, Viet Dietrich. This book commends itself for daily use by confessional Lutheran seminarians and pastors.”

—Prof. John T. Pless, Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, IN

Nice to have - Not as easy to use

I was blessed to receive this as a gift from CPH as a graduation present (along with a few other items). I've been using this on and off since I graduated. The days I use it, I like it for the prayers, but the devotional aspect with the readings found in the back is not easy to use. It would be incredibly helpful if there were a downloadable resource that came with this book to be able to have the readings in front of me so my devotional time isn't interrupted by constant flipping back and forth from front to back. I'm not sure there's a better way to arrange the book for ease of use, but certainly having a downloadable form of the lectionary, psalm of the day, and Confessions reading would make me more apt to use this daily rather than once or twice a week.
