A collection of short prayers about friends, enemies, relationship and the particular moments and places of our daily lives.

There is much wisdom and humour in these prayers, while some of them contain strong thoughts and words. 'Saying what we mean to God,' writes Burgess in her introduction, 'is more honest than tiptoeing around the issues and concerns we find disturbing or difficult. To write with integrity is to write within the traditions of the writers of the psalms.'

Three prayer-writing workshops are also included:
  • A Haiku Prayer Workshop - an introduction to short prayer writing, which can be enjoyed by participants of all ages
  • Writing Personal Prayers - an experimental workshop encouraging creativity and reflection
  • Writing Intercessory/Bidding Prayers - included because these are the prayers that lay people aree most often asked to contribute to public worship
This book is offered as a resource for personal prayer and public worship, and as an encouragement to both individuals and congregations to be creative and courageous in their prayers.
