In 128 pages, this book invites us to pray and act for peace in 40 different countries and around 13 different issues of peace and justice on a daily and weekly basis.  Each prayer page includes


+     a short description of the situation on the country or issue

+      a longer prayer for peace from that country or issue

+      suggestions for action (with the action websites in the  website Supplement)

+      a shorter prayer of petition that can be used in worship services




“Most importantly, this book points to the power of prayer and the importance of praying for peace as part of our spiritual discipline.  The message throughout is that we, sinful humans, are reliant on one another and the grace of God, even as we are called to be co-workers with God in building a future we can only glimpse.  In short, I have found it to be a hopeful and practical book that will have a central place in my own devotional life.

--  Michael Kinnamon, General Secretary, National Council of Churches


  “This beautiful book helps us to hold a hurting world in prayer and to walk a very contemporary Way of the Cross. May it deepen our compassion and our commitment to work for peace.” 

-- Marie Dennis, Director, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns, Co-President, Pax Christi International
