Fr. Austin Fleming is a pastor from Concord, Massachusetts, who decided eight years ago to start writing a blog featuring short daily prayers. From those beginnings, “A Concord Pastor Comments” has inspired hundreds of thousands of visitors across the country and the world. The appeal of his prayers lies in their simplicity and honesty. They easily find a home in every heart as they echo our own desires and longings. Here in one volume is a collection of prayers from the “Concord Pastor” that can be used to begin each morning. Whatever your state of mind and heart as you come to morning prayer, these prayers can jumpstart your own prayer to God.
