Despite the anxious and ubiquitous materialism of the modern world, the practice of prayer and meditation remains a source of both relief and inspiration for millions. This unique compilation of over 1,100 prayers combines the traditional with the modern, stretching from the Bible, the saints and mystics of the past, and the Book of Common Prayer, to a Ghanaian fisherman's prayer, and prayers from many influential non-Christian religions. Selected for their literary merit as well as spiritual quality, these prayers speak to the modern reader. Arranged under headings such as "Prayers from the Scripture," "Prayers of Christians, Personal and Occasional," and "Prayers of Other Traditions of Faith," the anthology includes a subject index to guide the reader to prayers for particular occasions, as well as an index of authors and sources. It serves as the ideal source for browsing or for more structured prayer, as well as for private meditation or public worship.… (plus d'informations)

The late Bishop George Appleton has assembled this selection of over 1,100 prayers from many centuries and many traditions. His choice is ecumenical in the widest sense of the word. The book also includes a subject index to guide the user to prayers for particular occasions, as well as an index of authors and sources.

a lovely book, full of inferred history, prayers from the 5th century still in use in 1979 American Boo of Common Prayer

An excellent anthology which, unusually, contains prayers from non-Christian as well as Christian traditions. ( )

Great book. There are numerous prayers for every occasion. Not a fan of the non-Christian prayers, but that probably makes me some kind of bigot. ( )
