Prayer is probably the most intimate experience of the spiritual life, yet it is also the one practice that has vanished from the public square because of its perceived divisive nature. Stephanie Dowrick who is known for her inspirational books believes that prayers are among the best aids to changing dysfunctional attitudes to oneself, to others and to life itself. In Stephanie's new book Heaven on Earth she has collected prayers from all traditions but avoids prayers that divide the world into us and them.
