Heart Cries Prayer book by Claire SmithMy name is Claire Annelise Smith. I am an ordained minister with a call to youth ministry and a passion to make space for people to connect with God more.  God is real and you encounter God more fully when you are real with God in your prayers. Then, you live into the abundance and freedom that God has promised.  Isn’t this what you seek? Isn’t this the longing of your heart?

That’s what this Heart Cries prayer book is about. I wrote these prayer to God about everything, expressing my pain, my praise, my frustration, my joy and happiness. They are just heart cries. They led to a deeper encounter with God.

You know how it is. Events in life can knock you off of your feet. Sometimes it’s tragedy. Other times it’s busyness. It can even be that you’re missing God because of some of the structures in church. It does happen and it’s just a part of life. That’s when you need heart cries.

Out of my heart cries came the fullness and freedom that God promises. Out of that also came a more consistent prayer time.

Prayers that are heart cries lead to the fullness and freedom that God promises and a more consistent prayer time.

Leslie Van BlarcomThe prayers are faith-filled, gentle and sincere. I especially resonated with: “Jesus,” “The Welcome,” “Crowded,” “Clay,” “Broken,” “Brokenness,” “Bereft,” “At the End of the Rope,” “The Honor,” “Liquid Boundaries” and “Loving God.” A friend just lost her spouse. I read “Bereft” to her and she cried – she said it is just what she feels right now.

Kathleen Minoo“Heart Cries” is a wonderfully appropriate title for this collection of prayers/poems written by Reverend Claire Smith.  They are soul-baringly honest, deeply moving, humbling and uplifting, all at the same time. They verbalize the myriad emotions I feel towards my Savior, but am unable to adequately express. Until now. I can feel the joy in praising God’s goodness, and be secure in knowing that whatever comes my way, He will always be faithful. My personal favorites of the collection, the ones that mirror my feelings, and allow me to speak my heart, are entitled “Prayer for the Day” and “Presence/ Quiet Time”.  Thank you , Claire, “Heart Cries”  feels like balm to my heart.” Kathleen Minoo, Bronx, NY


Heart Cries Prayer BookThe prayers in this book are deep, descriptive, and experiential. They invoke a spirit of peace and trust in God; in addition these prayers remind us all of how amazing our God is. I especially appreciate that there is a prayer for so many of life’s situations.

This morning, I was having an especially hard time concentrating; but I decided to try to read a prayer or two anyway. The prayers paint such a beautiful and descriptive picture, it was pretty easy to focus on that instead of other things swirling in my head. Whilst reading this book, I happened upon the term grace-full. Simply writing it this way sparked my thought that yes “life is full of moments of grace–I just have to remember (and be willing) to look for them.”  Rachel McClain, Moore, OK
