This is a very welcome book which presents prayers that aren’t just platitudes and homilies, but which are specifically designed to channel the power of the universe. This might be to ask for healing for someone, for courage to tackle a challenge or to ask for a successful conclusion to our endeavours. The prayers presented come from some of the great teachers in different traditions, but there are also tips on creatively formulating prayers for ourselves and specific advice on how to pray. There is a strong spiritual impulse running through the whole book and an awareness that prayer can bring about positive change and even bring peace to the planet. This gift hardback is beautifully presented and full of uplifting colour photographs. It’s also tremendous value.
