The distinctive voices of women at prayer throughout the ages and around the world―compiled by the biographer of Therese of Lisieux.
This beautiful book celebrates the rich variety of ways women around the world have called out to the Divine―with words of joy, praise, gratitude, wonder, petition, longing, and even anger―from the ancient world up to our own day. The prayers come from women of nearly every religious or spiritual tradition East and West, including ancient Greeks, Australian Aboriginals, medieval Christian mystics, Native Americans, Jewish poets, and Buddhist nuns. Together they provide an eloquent expression of women's inner lives that will resonate with modern readers, both women and men. Monica Furlong's intriguing commentary and insights make this a book to treasure and share.

Monica Furlong was an author and journalist who lived in London. She authored many books, including Longings: Medieval Women Mystics.From Publishers Weekly:
In Women Pray: Voices Through the Ages, from Many Faiths, Cultures and Traditions Monica Furlong gathers valuable glimpses of women's spirituality. Not all of the entries are formal prayers; the collection includes spiritual poetry by the likes of Denise Levertov and Emily Dickinson, and historical prose about the martyrdom of Perpetua and Felicitas. Any collection of this type, which encompasses so many religious traditions, risks losing those traditions' unique particularity. This collection falls prey to that tendency to some extent, but Furlong also appreciates the special gifts each tradition has to offer: "the Buddhist insistence on `getting free,' the ritual grace of both Judaism and Christianity, the ecstatic Native American delight in the world of trees and mountains and creatures."
