Fantastic Prayer Guide Aug 4, 2008
The prologue explains the use of this book very well and I've found it works best when used in that way. This book is a sort of stimulus for prayer and once the words begin flowing its easy to put the book down and continue my conversation with my higher power. But for the times when you just can't find the words to say or are just too exhausted to articulate your feelings this is an awesome compilation of prayers!!
It could be better...... Sep 14, 2007
It's worth having as it is but it's not the classic that it might have been. A hardcover edition with the prayers in Hebrew with transliteration, as well as the fine English translation contained in this book, would have been made this book a classic. To my knowledge the book I describe does not exist but it should. We need it! Publishers take note!
Beautiful Prayers May 2, 2007
These are a collection of beautiful prayers in English. I would look forward to a Hebrew with transliteration version in the future.
Prayers from and for old souls Oct 6, 2006
A well-written book of prayers, especially one meant to be carried on one's person, is worth its weight in gold. Unfortunately, all too many of them are about as inspirational as a dime store greeting card. Either that or they're so sectarian as to be of limited use generally.
It was with some lack of expectation, therefore, that I purchased a copy of THE GENTLE WEAPON. Much to my surprise it was the one book of prayers that succeeded at being intelligent, inspiring, and -- while unabashedly theistic -- theologically sophisticated.
I found only one prayer to be questionable: "...everything that happens to me... is an expression of Your everlasting love, and Your concern for my ultimate good." I prefer Reb Noson's prayer: "You send hidden messages to each person, in every situation, to bring him or her closer to Your service, in accordance with the place, the time, and the individual." So when I read "an expression of" I substitute: "embraced by."
I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for meaningful and compelling language for personal prayer.
Prayers for everyone who needs to pray Jan 29, 2005
This little collection is a selection of prayers from one of the great teachers of Hasidut Rebbe Nachman of Breslov. Rebbe Nachman said " When you pray, hold nothing back from God. Pour out your heart with honest openness as if you were speaking to your very best friend. " The element of non- fixed prayer of what is called hiboddedut of being alone with God for part of each day was practiced and perfected by Rebbe Nahman. Each of the prayers is a kind of meditation which can help the person think about their own situation and relation to God. And this when the Hebrew word ( tefilah) has in it the meaning of self- reflection and examination in moving closer to God. I believe that these prayers can inspire and help in many different situations .There are prayers on ' loss' and on' arrogance' and on 'living to the fullest ' and on ' joy' and on ' healing ' and on ' crying and sighing' and on ' true nourishment' and on ' giving' and on much much more. A wonderful little book to take with one everywhere, and from time to time dip in, for inspiration and spiritual strengthening.
