Chapter Summary

This chapter sets out to explore the ordinary theology of prayer requests in order to illuminate ways in which ordinary individuals envisage God impacting on matters of significance to the public square. This is approached by locating within the construct of ordinary theology and within the research tradition of ordinary prayer, before introducing an analytical framework devised to access the ordinary theology of the authors of 1670 prayer-request cards left in a rural Anglican church. Selected results of the analyses are presented and these form the basis for a series of conclusions of relevance to matters of significance to the public square.

Keywords: Anglican church; god; ordinary theology; personal prayer; public square
