Product description

'I do not know much about God and prayer, but I have come to believe, over the last twenty-five years, that there's something to be said about keeping prayer simple. Help. Thanks. Wow.' Readers of all ages have followed and cherished Anne Lamott's funny and perceptive writing about faith and prayer. And in Help, Thanks, Wow, she has coalesced everything she's learned about prayer into these simple, transformative truths. It is these three prayers - asking for assistance, appreciating the good we witness, and feeling awe at the world - that get us through the day and show us the way forward. In Help, Thanks, Wow, Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, explains what they have meant to her over the years and how they've helped, and explores how others have embraced these ideas. Insightful and honest as only Anne Lamott can be, Help, Thanks, Wow is a book that new Lamott readers will love and longtime Lamott fans will treasure.

Life and Work (Church of Scotland) This small book is simply amazing- a book on prayer that surpasses all faith, denomination and big word bias, instead dealing with the reality of heart and prayer... a stunning book. -- Melanie Carroll Together Magazine In Help, Thanks, Wow , Lamott recounts how she came to these insights, explains what they have meant to her over the years and how they've helped and how others have embraced these ideas. Watkins Mind Body Spirit Her writing is disarmingly profound. Breezily easy to read, but there's grace to uncover. Christianity No matter how you say it, grace can transform an ordinary meal into a celebration- of family, love and gratitude, says author Anne Lamot Families First Magazine Lamott insists that keeping prayers simple is essential when dealing with everyday problems ...
