Summary

This stunning collection of prayers from women throughout the Anglican Communion is organized according to themes of the Millennium Development Goals of The Episcopal Church. It makes direct connections between women's personal lives and global concerns of women everywhere, showing the interrelatedness, for example, between a woman's prayer for her infant in America and the plight of child laborers in developing countries.

Members of the editorial board include Jane Williams, Phoebe Griswold, plus women from Asia, South America, and the Middle East
