About the Book

This book is a collection of short, one or two page prayers for various occasions which the Stevenson family used during their evening devotions. The entire household and neighbors gathered by lantern light, including the "retainers" or servants. After the Scripture was read in the Samoan Bible by Lloyd,Robert's step-son, Robert would pray in English from his little book, "interpolating, or changing with the circumstances of the day". They then sang hymns in Samoan and recited The Lord's Prayer, also in Samoan. Some of the titles of prayer are: For Grace, For Success, Sunday, In Time Of Rain, and For the Family. These short prayers are full of honesty and grace.
