“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
