Morning and evening prayers for the peace of the whole world.
Following the pattern of his popular Celtic Benediction, Philip Newell provides lyrical and theologically profound prayers for morning and evening each day of the week. These devotions celebrate the spiritual legacy shared by Jews, Christians, and Muslims and articulate the longings for peace that are closer to the heart of these spiritual traditions than their divisions. Ideal for personal devotions, this book also provides a versatile liturgical resource appropriate for Christian or interfaith use.
Each devotion features:
* A Beatitude
* A Prayer of Awareness
* Meditative Readings from the Psalms, the Gospel of Matthew, and the Qu'ran
* A Prayer for the Life of the World
* A Prayer of Blessing
* Rich full-color illustrations drawn from Jewish, Christian, and Islamic art
