My Heart in My Mouth



"What I like best about Loder's prayers is that they are filled with images to send the soul soaring."
--Spirituality & Health
"Ted Loder is the poet of prayer. I know no one who so movingly and honestly brings us before God
in prayers that touch the personal and the social dimensions of our lives. I suspect that I will pray from
this book the rest of my life."
--Tex Sample, Coordinator of The Network for the Study of U. S. Lifestyles, Robert B. and Kathleen Professor Emeritus of Church and Society, Saint Paul School of Theology
"Does prayer have to be stilted or sentimental? Can it express real feeling without getting weepy? Ted
Loder shows how prayer can escape these pitfalls and become authentic. One could well start or end
each day with one of these."
--Harvey Cox, Professor of Divinity, Harvard University; Author of Fire from Heaven
"This is a revealing, intensely personal, and wonderful book of prayers, rich and insightful. Loder helps
us to stretch our experiences, our emotions, and our imaginations just a little bit more."
--Rev. William H. Gray, III, Senior Pastor, Bright Hope Baptist Church; President/CEO, United Negro College Fund
"Loder is a modern-day psalmist whose prayers are disarmingly honest and refreshingly real. His message: in all of life's beauty and brokenness love is the struggle that tutors the soul."
--Julie Neraas, Presbyterian minister, Spiritual Director, and Faculty Member, Hamline University, St. Paul, Minnesota
"Loder offers thoughtful and well-crafted prayers that are written in the familiar cadence of everyday
language but leavened with echoes of the inspired awe, wonder, and praise of the ancient Scriptures."
--Dr. Bob Edgar, General Secretary, National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA; former Congressman from Pennsylvania
"Ted Loder is a master pastor. In these prayers we see a pastor bringing his people before the throne of
God. Good reading. Good praying."
--Dr. William H. Willimon, Dean of the Chapel and
Professor of Christian Ministry, Duke University, Durham, North Carolina
