Nearly a hundred prominent men and women from every religious tradition and around the globe here share a favorite prayer, while reflecting on its personal meaning. Nobel Peace Prize winners Lech Walesa, Mairead Corrigan, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, and the Dalai Lama join Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, theologian Hans Küng, spiritual writers Richard Rohr and Sr. Joan Chittister, artists and musicians such as Pete Seeger and Yusuf Islam, and many more. The prayers include classic and familiar texts from every religious tradition. But some of the selections are surprisingly personal, offering a glimpse into the heart of many great souls of our time.

Rosalind Bradley was born in the U.K. and has lived in Australia for the past 25 years. She has edited Mosaic: Favorite Prayers and Reflections from Inspiring Australians.From Booklist:
Not all of the individuals quoted in this collection of favorite prayers share the belief that prayer is about petitioning for or investing in desired outcomes. Even so, as an extremely diverse group, the almost 100 men and women here have consistently managed to achieve high levels of effectiveness in helping others. Consistently, they all attribute their potency as leaders to their faith and beliefs. From Buddhist nuns and Jesuit priests to Nobel Prize winners and spiritual writers, the core of strength for each comes from putting beliefs into action. By sharing the Gospels, poetry, verses, and personal contemplations that motivate them, these leaders offer strength to others attempting to find their way. This book is best digested a passage or two a day with time spent for contemplation or discussion. It is an invaluable tool for solitary or group motivation and inspiration. --Susan DeGrane
