Although the act of prayer is universal, public prayer is unique in that it must welcome people of many faiths. It requires a common spiritual language that will "on the one hand, invoke a sense of the holy and, on the other, provide a common ground of belonging for all present." Here, Annie Foerster presents a helpful volume for clergy or lay people participating in interfaith worship, and for those who want to be able to write meaningful public prayers of their own. The first three sections focus on addressing the holy, creating sacred space with prayer, and closing a prayer, along with suggestions from many sources on how to craft prayers. The final section includes nearly eighty prayers by Foerster and others, which may be used as is or adapted.
