1,000 World Prayers is a very comprehensive selection of prayers from all religions traditions. It is arranged thematically. The anthology has two outstanding features. It draws widely on many of the world’s great religious and spiritual traditions and it focuses on contemporary concerns. There are prayers for times of joy – such as the birth of a child – and times of sadness – such as sexual abuse or sudden bereavement. There are many prayers for the needs of the world, for hungry, for peace, for the environment as well as ones which reflect the Divine Mystery.
John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford, called it “The most helpful and comprehensive anthology of prayers that I have found.”
