9780060089702: WomanPrayers : Prayers by Women from throughout History and Around the World

This rich blend of prayers, poems, and sayings by women writers and sages from around the world and throughout history offers daily inspiration and delight. Included in this collection are diverse voices ranging from the early Sufi mystic Rabia and the trailblazing Mechtild of Magdeburg, to contemporary poets Denise Levertov, Kathleen Norris, Maya Angelou, Jane Hirshfield, and Mary Oliver. These and many other treasures of women’s wisdom are gathered here from such wide-ranging sources as Celtic blessings, Native American petitions, and Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Hindu, and Chinese prayers.

An expert on spirituality with a remark-able eye for the best inspirational literature, Ford-Grabowsky includes in this collection prayers of praise, thanks, petition, mystical ecstasy, and insight. Her book explores self-discovery, mothering, inner strength, needs, work, gratefulness, spiritual darkness, mysti-cal experience, and love.

About the Author:

Mary Ford-Grabowsky is an award-winning writer, editor, and teacher with a specialty in the world's mystical traditions. Her publications include inspirational books, such as Prayers for All People and Sacred Poems and Prayers of Love, and many essays and scholarly articles. After receiving a master of divinity degree and a doctorate in theology and spirituality from Princeton Theological Seminary, she taught in the religious studies department of Regis College, later returning to Princeton to become editor of Fellowhsip in Prayer. In 1995 she moved to California at the invitation of the Episcopal theologian Matthew Fox to become vice president and academic dean of the Universtiy of Creation Spirituality in Oakland, where she today serves as a member of the adjunct faculty and board. Among honors she has received are an award from the ecumenical branch of the World Council of Churches for distinguished service in interfaith work. A translater who studed Spanish in Mexico and German, French, and Italian in Europe, she has been collecting and translating prayers for many years and is currently preparing a book of women's prayers for publication. She warmly invites readers of this book to send their favorite prayers to her at: P.O. Box 21267, Oakland, CA 94620-1267.

From Publishers Weekly:

A run-down of some of this book's contributors-which include Marianne Williamson, Oriah Mountain Dreamer, Hildegard of Bingen, Ammachi, and anonymous Celtic and Native American authors-suggests that its intended audience is women interested in New Age and feminist spirituality. It certainly succeeds in providing well-sifted, prayerful reading for its target market. The book's greatest strength is the pride of place it gives to poetry, eschewing sappy, written-for-the-moment prayers in favor of reflective poems from many different times and spiritual traditions. Rita Dove and Denise Levertov get their due; Anne Lamott offers a poem of gratitude; and Madeleine L'Engle contributes a lovely three-line invocation. This feast of women's poetry would make a marvelous gift from one woman to another, or-perhaps more importantly-for a woman to give herself.
