ISBN-13: 9780819229069



Prayer and praying takes a variety of forms, but in today’s secular world, many people aren’t sure what it is or how to do it. Donigian (re)introduces three prayers—the Lord’s Prayer, the Serenity Prayer, and Dag Hammarskjold’s famous prayer from Markings— as gifts for those who are uncertain or unclear about prayer…and praying.

For seekers, individuals, small groups, and those looking to deepen their faith; particularly well suited for the 20-40 year old demographic; also ideal as a gift book.

George H. Donigian is a United Methodist pastor, author, editor, and former publisher. Raised Armenian Orthodox, he has traveled extensively and prayed with folks in locales as distinctly different as Soweto, South Africa, and Geneva, Switzerland. He lives in Greenville, South Carolina.

Here is a book that opens personal and social depths of prayer like no other in recent memory. Three well-known prayer texts co-mingle with the author’s life story to reveal things about prayer and life so desperately needed in today’s world. The unlikely combination of prayers by a diplomant (Dag Hammerskjold), a theologian (Reinhold Neibuhr), and a rabbi (Jesus of Nazareth)—sounded by George Donigian’s distinctive Armenian/American voice—come alive as prophecy, wisdom, and saving grace. Elegantly written, these pages will invite, challenge, and change your understanding of what it is to pray with others, over a lifetime in all circumstances. Don’t miss it.

In Three Prayers You’ll Want to Pray, George Donigian touches on the most important aspects of our faith: God’s love for the world, God’s radical liberation for us all, and how God desires to use us to make it happen. A must-read for anyone desiring to reach the heart of their faith.
