In Fire in the Soul, Richard L. Morgan offers prayers to God for help in meeting the following late-life challenges:
- discovering God's call at retirement
- moving to deeper contemplation
- accepting aging
- discerning the meaning of stories
- facing loss and death
- redeeming suffering
Morgan includes personal prayers (most written after his own retirement) as well as classic prayers from John Calvin, Saint Augustine, John Donne, and Teresa of Avila. A constant spiritual guide for the later years, Fire in the Soul is a valuable guide for midlifers as well as clergy, social workers, and other professionals who work with older adults.
