Product Description

Praying with the Earth: A Prayer Book for Peace offers morning and evening prayers of peace not only for Christians, but supplications for the peace of the entire world. As such, thsi book addresses a growing awareness and conciousness that if peace is to be achieved we must not only work together, but God must be petitioned in humility and repentance.

Following the pattern of his popular Celtic Benediction, Philip Newell provides lyrical and theologically profound prayers for morning and evening each day of the week. These devotions celebrate the spiritual legacy shared by Jews, Christians, and Muslims and articulate the longings for peace that are closer to the heart of these spiritual traditions than their divisions.

Ideal for personal devotions, this book also provides a versatile liturgical resource appropriate for Christian or interfaith use.

Each devotion features:

  • A Beatitude
  • A Prayer of Awareness
  • Meditative Readings from the Psalms, the Gospel of Matthew, and the Qu'ran
  • A Prayer for the Life of the World
  • A Prayer of Blessing
  • Rich full-color illustrations drawn from Jewish, Christian, and Islamic art

Publisher's Description

We as Jews, Christians, and Muslims share a common spiritual descent, yet painful divisions between us lie at the center of much conflict and war in the world today. Praying with the Earth: A Prayerbook for Peace articulates the deep longings for peace that unite these great spiritual traditions.

For each morning and evening of the week, John Philip Newell provides strikingly beautiful and profound prayers that call us to be the people Jesus named blessed: “those who know their need,” “those who weep,” “the humble,” “those who hunger for earth’s oneness,” “the forgiving,” “the clear in heart,” and “the peacemakers.”

Whether prayed alone or with others, these richly illustrated, simple liturgies invite and inspire us to live as those whose hearts yearn for peace.
