Q. WHAT IS THIS BOOK ABOUT?
A. Prayer. We believe we pray because we are human, not because we are religious. Religious tradition can and often does provide language, shape and space for prayer, but the primal instinct to pray does not emanate from or begin with religion. Instead, something in our nature points beyond itself; something in us searches for and appeals to The Divine. We wrote this book to help you find language, shape and space for the basic, human, spiritual and beautiful need to pray. 

Q. WHY DID YOU MAKE IT?
A. Because, as natural as prayer is, the practice of it often seems to take place behind closed doors in exclusive clubs with language and imagery exclusive to that club. We have created a work that provides language and imagery accessible to people from a multitude of religious backgrounds as well as for those with no real religious background at all. 

Q. WHAT IS IN THE BOOK, EXACTLY? 
A. Quite a bit, to be honest. 

- Justin McRoberts has written 40 guided prayers.  

- Scott Erickson has paired each prayer with beautiful, contemplative imagery. 

- Each of the book's seven sections is capped by reflections on the practice of prayer and each of those reflections points toward specific, suggested practices
