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.

About the Author:


About the Editor:
George Appleton, a retired Bishop, has had a wide and varied ministry in the Anglican Church. He served for a short time as Archdeacon of London and Canon of St. Paul's Cathedral. He was elected Archbishop of Perth, Western Australia in 1963 and was Archbishop in Jerusalem from 1969 to 1974.

Review:

'this collection of prayers has become a classic, to be found on the shelves of almost every member of the clergy ... many are deeply personal and beautifully suited to those moments when we simply need help in expressing the thoughts of our hearts'
Andrew Cain, The Door
