Description

From the bestselling author of Until Today! and
One Day My Soul Just Opened Up comes a unique invitation
to prayer -- and her most deeply personal book yet.


Over the years, bestselling author Iyanla Vanzant has received many letters from readers who want to know how to pray. Some are afraid they are praying wrong. Some want a formula. Some think their prayers are unworthy. Here, Iyanla shares the realizations that changed her experience with prayer once and for all: Every thought, every word, every action is a prayer; focus on God's presence in everything -- and everyone -- and prayer becomes as natural as breathing.

The prayers in Everyday I Pray culled from Iyanla's own prayer journal, address a variety of topics and situations. It is Iyanla's hope that they will spark a light in the hearts of readers, and that others will come to know the peace of God's grace. With this intimate collection, she invites readers everywhere to join her in making the thoughts, words, and deeds of everyday life more reverent, honorable, and loving.

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 14, 2002 – Prayer is"an inner communion with the divine" and should be"as natural as breathing," writes spirituality diva Vanzant, author of the bestselling In the Meantime, in this collection drawn from her ongoing"Prayer Journal." There's undeniable energy (and a lot of exclamation points) in Vanzant's personal entreaties; she's fond of ringing but generic affirmations of God (who is"awesome,""magnificent,""amazing" and"a skilled negotiator") and self ("I praise my body! I love my body!")."Every thought, every word, every action is a prayer," Vanzant says, but she still offers specifics: there are prayers for"Alignment with God" and for blessing married couples; to"Eliminate Tiredness or Exhaustion" and to give thanks. Her fervent desire for the Divine presence in every facet of life will be inspiring for many, but others might find her detailed invocations ("Teach me to monitor my thoughts and desires to ensure that they are filled with love, harmony and peace for myself and everyone in my life in all situations and under all circumstances";"Please purge my agenda today. Take out of my life everything...that could possibly take my focus from you") a trifle demanding. Replete with"I" statements, many of her prayers seem self-absorbed; the longer, more reflective ones, such as"Prayer When Ending a Relationship" and"God's Promise" strike deeper chords. Vanzant's spirituality of is powerful and motivating, as is her rags-to-riches bio, but occasionally this volume seems as much about her as it is about God. Photos of Vanzant and her children.
