“The White-Robed Army of Martyrs Praise Thee”: A Review of “Martyrs Prayers”

Today, for many Christians, the stories and prayers of martyrs are at best "old words" locked in "old books" or "old libraries." They are also rarely guests at all, much less novel guests.  But thanks in part to this collection, they may become more familiar and welcome guests. We can all hear them, and we can share them in study and worship, in all their wonderful strangeness, with fresh new arrangements in music, comprehensive liner notes with background and lyrics, and an expanding video collection.

A Prayer Meditation for All Saints Day

We give you thanks, O God,
for all the saints who ever worshiped you
Whether in brush arbors or cathedrals,
Weathered wooden churches or crumbling cement meeting houses
Where your name was lifted and adored.
