Dr. Stamm integrates the biblical, theological, and pastoral insight fitting of a liturgical scholar-pastor as he attempts to improve and deepen the church’s congregational practice of intercessory prayer. In Devoting Ourselves to the Prayers: A Baptismal Theology for the Church’s Intercessory Work, Dr. Stamm points to the strong biblical and historical connections between baptism and intercessory prayer, suggesting that intercessory prayer is a vocation-a calling-rooted in our common baptism. Imaginative, informative, and deeply committed to the idea that prayer is an essential practice of the church, this book not only addresses what has become the church’s neglect of intercessory prayer but the difference such praying makes.
