    A Commonly Neglected Practice in Paganism Returns to the Limelight

    A Book of Pagan Prayer is an excellent read for Pagans of numerous religions and personal paths, in my opinion. I feel that this book transcends skill level, there are helpful tips and reminders in here for the novice and experienced alike. Serith moves smoothly through his explanations that begin with why and how we pray and then continues onto a brief, but well written look at Pagan prayers of the past and present. The author offers the reader a variety of different ways to pray by using not only our voices but our bodies as well.********** The subject of offerings is a significant part of this book and the author includes some simple offering ideas and concepts that I hadn't considered. For Pagans who do not use offerings in their path, you'll have to wade through a good bit of discussion on it. Who knows though? Perhaps you will be inspired to try adding offerings to your prayers and rituals.********** Serith moves onward into ideas on how to prepare for prayer. Chapter four was my favorite section, as Serith instructs on some simple ways for the individual to compose their own prayers. He doesn't linger on ways to make the prayers sound pretty or force them to rhyme; instead he stresses the importance of making them full of sincerity and praise to the diety(s). Sporadic prayers are touched on, but this is not the focus of the book. Those who have a disinterest in set-prayer will not find this book helpful.********** The last section of the book concentrates on set prayers that Serith has created himself. They don't rhyme and they aren't full of beautiful words, they're bare boned and straight to the point- this may bother some who are used to a more ornate form of prayer. There are examples of prayer for all sorts of times and occasions. I liked the fact that Serith used a wide variety of dieties in his prayer examples because it gave him a farther reach to connect with a variety of Pagan paths that aren't necessarily Wicca-oriented.********** A Book of Pagan Prayer isn't for everyone, but I think that it would find a way onto many bookshelves if readers take a good look through it. This is the only book that I've seen on the market that is specific to Pagan paths and puts the spotlight on a spiritual practice that is all to often overlooked; the simple, yet powerful act of prayer.

    A prayer for just about everything

    When you don't have time to create your own prayer, or don't really know how to write one yet is when this book comes in handy... No Pagan home should be without one...

    Lovely!

    Thought this had a very large selection of prayers within it. Lovely for those who have problems writing their own prayers. A good book to have on every pagan bookshelf
