  • Ruby Mayrath, member of The Order, has published a book of collects. She recently realized that some of the prayers she often says fall into an ancient form called Collect prayers. You may find among these Collects, prayers which say to God what you Otherwise find difficult to express.

If you want a copy, you may purchase it at The Book Patch.
