Morning and evening prayers for the peace of the whole world.

We as Jews, Christians, and Muslims share a common spiritual descent, yet painful divisions between us lie at the center of much conflict and war in the world today. Praying with the Earth: A Prayerbook for Peace articulates the deep longings for peace that unite these great spiritual traditions.

For each morning and evening of the week, John Philip Newell provides strikingly beautiful and profound prayers that call us to be the people Jesus named blessed: “those who know their need,” “those who weep,” “the humble,” “those who hunger for earth's oneness,” “the forgiving,” “the clear in heart,” and “the peacemakers.”

Whether prayed alone or with others, these richly illustrated, simple liturgies invite and inspire us to live as those whose hearts yearn for peace.

“A treasure. . . . This little book will inspire and unite and will be a catalyst for peace as well as a devotional aid to those who read and pray it with sincerity. It should be part of parish libraries, and would be a wonderful devotion in schools and religious communities.”
— Catholic Library World
“There are some wonderful things about Praying with the Earth. It is brief, making it accessible to busy people, and of a size perfect for slipping into a laptop case or a backpack. It is a beautiful volume filled with artwork.”
