A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal

We rated this book:


Anyone searching for a way to pray will find this book most helpful. Prayers of gratitude are included, but given the current global situation, many of the prayers are those of supplication. The book includes prayers from different denominations, although most are within the Western Christian tradition. As a result, anyone, no matter what tradition they follow, could appreciate the wisdom in each of these selections. The prayers are not exaltations, but can be as simple as gratitude for homemade chicken soup.

This reader particularly likes the breathing meditation found at the end of part one. The book is divided in three parts: Orientation, Disorientation, and Reorientation. In the last section, there is a prayer for those of us who have lost our way again, which, given the turbulent times, may be most of us. Best of all, the reader will not find judgements or calls for repentance in this book. The editor of this collection prays to the God of parking spots and prisons. With her conception of an ordinary approachable power, the prayers become relevant to a spirituality for today.
