Women's Uncommon Prayersby Ann Smith, Marjorie A. Burke
Written by clergy and lay women from all around the country, this compilation of prayers and poems is the collective wisdom of contemporary women who base
Looking for ways to be strong yet tender, independent yet intimate, women today strive toward ever greater understanding of themselves, their relationships with family and friends, and their place in the world.
Written by clergy and lay women from all around the country, this compilation of prayers and poems is the collective wisdom of contemporary women who base their search for such understanding on the belief that all of life must be seen against the backdrop of a vital faith. Offered in a spirit of sharing and encouragement, these prayers and poems are as rich, intricate, and complex as the women's lives they represent.
Women's Uncommon Prayers covers the full spectrum of emotions from desperate pleas for compassion in times of despair to quiet gratitude for the simple blessings of everyday living, to raucous praise during moments of celebration. These prayers touch on an amazing array of topics organized under the categories of identity, daily life, stages of life, spirituality, and ministry. Also included are comprehensive sections of seasonal and corporate prayers.

If you've been looking for something to connect you to others who feel as you do, this book is a MUST! I was given this as a gift and have read it entirely after only two days. The poems, prayers, and meditations are thought-provoking and nurturing, by women, for women. Also, the profits are designated to support women & children who are victims of violence. I have ordered multiple copies for Christmas gifts.
