Item Description...
She Who Prays: A Woman's Interfaith Prayer Book offers women a new way to pray. Drawing on feminine images of God - and on the language and experience of women - it helps women tap into their own rich and unique spirituality. Readers will find a wealth of prayers from a variety of traditions - early Christian, Native American, and others. With a liturgical calendar honoring the lives of women of all faiths, along with rituals for group celebrations such as weddings and the welcoming of a child, She Who Prays will help women speak to God in their own voices.

Publishers Description
A Prayer book designed to be used by individual women, as well as by those who are leading group prayer services. For nearly two millennia, Christian women have learned to pray in the language of other people's souls. From worshiping God as father to envisioning a holy life as a military campaign, they've been taught to approach the Divine with the hearts and minds of men. She Who Prays: A Woman's Interfaith Prayer Book offers women a new way to pray. It draws on feminine images of God, as well as the language and experience of women, to help women tap into their own rich and unique spirituality. With material from new translations of ancient Christian hymns and prayers, as well as original prayers in the Christian and other faith traditions, She Who Prays will help women speak to God in their own voices. Arranged in roughly the same format as the Book of Common Prayer, She Who Prays contains a seven-day cycle of daily prayer services, prayers for special occasions, and a woman-oriented liturgical calendar that honors the lives of women of all faiths. The book also contains four rituals marking such themes as healing, reconciliation, and new beginnings, and a prayer to be used while walking a labyrinth. An appendix provides information on world religions and instructions for group services.

The Thinking Women's Prayer Book  Oct 7, 2005
Finally someone published a book that is prayerful and inspirational and not dependent on all the male gender God references that get so tiresome. Buy this book and teach these prayers to your children and grandchildren.
She Who Prays: A Woman's Interfaith Prayer Book  Apr 13, 2005
Not to diminish any one area...but, it all speaks to me. There is nothing that Jane or Pat wrote that I did not feel God's presence in. The entire book is beautiful. It's filled with the Holy Spirit and it makes you want to come back and read more. It's a work of art that is aesthetically pleasing, spiritually uplifting, cultural,...and entertaining!!! Both Jane and Pat are very gifted writers and scholars! Thank you for your gift to society! You are both wonderful spiritual leaders!!!

Life and Joy  Apr 5, 2005
One look at the Table of Contents of SHE WHO PRAYS: A WOMAN'S INTERFAITH PRAYER BOOK, and you know you're in for something quite different. The book is a collaboration between two very Spirit-filled women. This is no ordinary Prayer Book! Where, for instance, can you find prayers for 'Round People in Square Holes'? And the Weekly Collects written by Harris-Watkins are simply brilliant. However, to me, the truly astonishing quality of this Prayer Book are its depth of Spirituality, Mysticism, and Vision. The words coming out of the minds of these two women, and the way they have set them down on paper, have got to be Cosmically Inspired!
A Prayer Book for Syncretists  Mar 30, 2005
Given the sad present condition of the Episcopal Church in the USA, the publication of this book should not be surprising. The book is put forth by an Episcopal author as an alternative "prayer book" using "feminine images of God." Perhaps half of the text is unobjectionable, drawing on some Psalms and other Scriptures for readings. The Church Calendar (p. 102) is largely made up of Christian figures. But these orthodox citations are placed among a collection of non-Christian gods, feminist heroines and pagan conjectures, suggesting that all of them are equally valid. (Examples: January 14, 15, 22; February 4, 7, 9, 15, 19, etc. ad nauseum)

I take particular note of "A Rite To Redeem Eden's Goodness" (p. 164) and "A Ritual of Joining Two People Into A Covenant Relationship" (p. 160). The rite to "redeem" creates a complete substitute for the sacrifice of Jesus Body and Blood in the eucharist, re-enacting the eating of the "apple" that introduced sin to mankind. ("Taste and see that you are good" -- !!! p. 168) The "covenant joining" rite is written to avoid any limitation of the "two people" to a male-female marriage covenant.

An "alternative Lord's Prayer" by Jim Cotter is used repeatedly (p. 24, 30, 159, etc.). Cotter is a founder of a Gay and Lesbian Christian Movement in England (there is no identification of him offered in this book). The Lord's Prayer from Scripture is never used, presumably because it speaks of God only as a Father, and this book has a strident feminist agenda.

A new series of Collects (p. 166 ff) addresses God variously as "Heavenly Mother-Father," "Motherly Father," "Holy God of Inner Vision," "Mother Spirit," and in one case adopts a Muslim mystic's designation "God of the Beautiful Names." These are sprinkled among more orthodox titles, again suggesting they're all acceptable and appropriate - but also clearly shoving any unique Christian claims off the table.

Elsewhere the book offers prayers to Bast, the Egyptian Cat Goddess (p. 14), Arianrhod, the Moon Goddess of Wales (p. 24), the White Buffalo Calf Woman (p. 26), Pele, Goddess of Volcanoes (p. 40), Lilith (p. 45, "I was the first woman, created before Eve"), even to Thunder (p. 37) and Trees (p. 50)!!

This syncretistic embrace of any and all religions is made explicit (if you haven't gotten the point already) in a "Service of Reconciliation" (p. 175 ff) which includes prayer for "the followers of the religions of the world and for those with no religion" (p. 178) in which various cults and heretical sects, including wicca, are lauded for their contributions.

Prayerful reading  Mar 22, 2005
I've shared this with friends, and used it for my morning quiet time. It's been a comfort, despite having more Mother God stuff than I'm used to. The prayers for women from so many different places and faiths are great.
