The 365 poems during this assortment, one for each day of the yr, are a trip via prayer. the target of the poems is to function an accompaniment to prayer, silently, within the kind of a verse. The preliminary suggestion of those writings used to be from the Psalms, yet there's referenced fabric in the course of the Scriptures, in addition to occasions that happened in historical past and within the author's lifestyle. With just a couple of exceptions, the prayer/poems usually are not date particular, denomination particular, or maybe particular to the writer basically, yet to all people. The poems communicate of topics resembling religion, loss of life, nature, freedom, love, good looks, and background. every one poem is meant so one can stand by itself, self sustaining of the others. those poems are distinct in that they're prayers first, poems moment, and will be thought of day-by-day devotions, non secular meditations, or as a source for pastors of all Christian denominations. they're written so they may be "crossover" poetry, and will be appealing to secular tastes in addition.

The enormous job of scripting this many poems introduced the author's realization to prayer itself, and to the character of inventive expression, which can't be compelled, yet needs to come of its personal. The succeeding "visitations" of the tips or inspirations gave cause to think that, now not strangely, the writer had support from the very ONE being written to, and about.

"At a going-away get together years in the past, Jack Bartlett gave me a gift--a folder of his poems, loved items of his middle and brain tying these elements of his being with these of mine. After many, many steps in our pilgrimage, he now deals simply this kind of reward to others. In those prayer-poems his phrases carry for us what his middle and brain understand of affection, peace, and grace--and a God who catches up all our hearts and minds in loving embrace."

"A magazine 'launched' on the writer, written traditionally in solitude, the place he unearths himself 'like a wintry weather foot with out a sock,' day-by-day, within his Texas cabin, in a canoe, or trundling although autumn woods, Bartlett's 'A yr of Prayers' heralds his shape-shifting Lord as 'the maestro of majestic cohesion.' His radiant verses usually echo the playfulness of G. M. Hopkins, the surprising middle jolts of Reynolds expense, and the fierce, psalmic inquisitions and jubilations of King David. three hundred and sixty five days of luminous tanagers and hummingbird wings, 'pink moon seasons' and 'hemlock canopies,' nursing houses and Roman villas, squaddies and kids, DNA and melanoma, fireplace ants and catfish, paintings and track, his personal blindness and visionary ecstasies, the deaths of his mom and dad and births of grandchildren; all visible as presents, on his 'peaceful or tumultuous journey' at the 'trail on your love'--encountering God."
