Review quote

"Stephanie Dowrick sees prayer as the constant tuning of heart and mind to the bounty of Kabir's 'single kind of love' that is directly recognized in all streams of contemplative practice, however differently they may name it. Her volume of prompts towards that open state is bounty in its own right." --Dr. Susan Murphy, Zen roshi and author of "Minding the Earth, Mending the World"
