Here is an anthology of powerful prayers that were assembled and especially prized by Harvard Square Library’s founding Director, the Rev. Herbert Vetter. The emphasis throughout is on world affirmation and reverence for life. Wherever necessary all these prayers of power have been degenderized, and archaic language is avoided. While the accent falls on twentieth century works from North America, many centuries and many continents are represented in this search for inner ways of making the world whole again. Edited by Herbert F. Vetter in 2009.
