Anne Lamott has created a concise explanation of prayer. In three essential prayers she shows how to ask for assistance from a higher power, how to appreciate the good things in life and how to feel awe about the surrounding world. These prayers will help people to achieve a feeling of serenity and get through the day without undue stress. Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, what they mean to her and how they have helped others. Insightful and honest, this is the everyday faith book that will help all who read it.
