Praying Like A Woman is the expression of one woman’s journey through life and faith, yet its themes of struggle, suffering, and joy, are universal. It is both intensely personal, and also appealing and relevant to all women. “My hope is that whoever picks up this book may be encouraged to pray as and who they are, towards who they may yet become.”.
The collection contains prayers, poems, songs, psalms, canticles, litanies, laments and creeds, as well as personal reflections. The areas covered include traditional areas for prayer, but also diverge into more specific themes, particularly relevant for women, such as the body and health. Praying Like A Woman is ideal for women who want to explore and develop their faith. The author hopes it will help other women to live into the experience of being a woman, in the particular time and place in which they find themselves, in the eyes of others and of God.
“[The] poems and prayers bear witness to a faith of considerable depth and raw honesty, as she holds her God to account for her own sufferings and those of women throughout the world and across time. And then comes joy, exuberant as the spring, and as unexpected as the resurrection.” Janet Morley (author of All Desires Known).
