The treasury of American prayer

Image of item
Since its inception, America has remained a deeply religious and spiritual nation, fostering a prayer culture that has thrived among its diverse population and its wide-ranging faith traditions. This anthology brings together hundreds of prayers composed largely by Americans from all walks of life to create an unparalleled collection of "home-grown" expressions of spirituality and religious conviction. These prayers form an inspiring portrait of the country's rich and profound faith and provide access to the innermost thoughts of such individuals as Benjamin Franklin, Elvis Presley, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Conrad Hilton. They have helped sustain Americans in times of war and recession as well as in periods of change and even prosperity. The book is arranged by such topics as patience, thanksgiving, despair, love, and other timeless themes. It provides context, historical perspective, and a personal insight for each prayer.--From publisher description.
