Reprinting of Dr. Phifer's Classic Work

Kenneth G. Phifer knew that for many of us, prayer gets crowded out to the edges of life. But in "A Book of Uncommon Prayer", Phifer has offered prayers that speak to people’s ordinary, daily needs. Here you will find prayers that are personal, immediate, and touched with grace. In free verse, Phifer wrote prayers for various moods—impatience, wonder, discouragement, longing for miracles. He also wrote for ‘uncommon days’ such as the day after a funeral, the night before surgery, Mardi Gras, and others.

Kenneth Phifer was Senior Pastor of St. Charles Avenue Presbyterian Church for almost twenty years. Prior to that he was Professor of Homiletics at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary. During his long ministry he served churches in Tennessee, South Carolina, and Virginia and was author of numerous books.
