Each encounter includes some thoughts for reflection at the end. This was not the original idea, there were prayers written to conclude each reflection. It's a shame they are not in the book because a prayer is maybe what we need more than more thinking time, at least occasionally.
Anyway, good news, if you want them, the prayers are available through Conrad's blog annexe. Here's a sample:
ENCOUNTER 15 - The Ungrateful ParalyticI'd recommend this as a great devotional book to dip into, especially if you've grown tired of some of those year-long daily reading books or dare one say even a certain 40-day purpose driven plan.
Lord God, teach us to deal with reality — to accept responsibilities and to own our debts of gratitude. Forgive us when
we blame you and others for things that go wrong and for forgetting to notice people’s names when things go right.
When it comes down to it, we know that we have no idea why you chose us, except that perhaps it has more to do with
our shortcomings than with our qualities. Change us.
Oh, and by the way, not all the encounters are food related, just some of them!
