From the author of the best-selling To Begin Again -- a collection of personal prayers for people of all faiths and for all occasions large and small.
Prayer is essential to the lives of millions, but for many, traditional prayer can be unsatisfying or alienating. Now, Talking to God offers prayers that are simple, direct, and intimate, and that transform praying into an act as natural and uninhibited as talking to a loved one. Here are prayers for the events and moments of daily life -- facing a new day, realizing one's potential at work, celebrating an anniversary or birthday, going to sleep at night. And here are prayers for the more profound occurrences in life -- love and marriage, pregnancy and childbirth, illness, loss, and death.
Rabbi Levy's prayers -- imbued with grace and empathy -- touch on the whole range of human experience. They are stepping-stones for us to go on and create our own prayers, and to begin or renew our own relationship with God.
