In this beautiful new book of prayers, Rev. John Dear offers fifty prayers on peace, love and nonviolence that we can turn to every day to help us on our journey of peace. Radical Prayers offers prayers of thanks and adoration to the God of peace; then prayers for ourselves on our journey of nonviolence; then prayers for the whole human race, all the creatures, Mother Earth, the abolition of war, the Church, and the coming of God’s reign of nonviolence one earth. It concludes with a prayer inspired by Thomas Merton, for the conversion of the human race to “total nonviolence.”
Radical Prayers also includes a thoughtful introduction about the connection between prayer and nonviolence, and the necessity for those pursuing the nonviolent life to take time each day in quiet, prayerful meditation with the God of peace. Radical Prayers makes a good companion to John Dear’s other Pace e Bene book, The Nonviolent Life, and makes a good gift for friends and peacemakers.
