Meet the God of mystery, who waits, and loves extravagantly.

People of every faith, and none, pray to express their deepest needs. Whether seeking spiritual knowledge, God’s love, or with questions and doubts, each of these prayers from classic Christian sources is vibrantly alive. To pray these words is to meet God in a whole new way.

Whether appealing for knowledge, seeking a sense of the love of God, or about asceticism, questions and doubts, or contemplation and action, each of these prayers (from Christian and other religious tradition sources) are vibrantly alive. Rooted in classic sources, each prayer in Essential Mystic Prayers is important, especially now, in the 21st century. This book collects some of the most beautiful of these prayers. 

Lay me to sleep in sheltering flame, O Master of the hidden fire! Wash pure my heart, and cleanse for me my soul’s desire. In flame of sunrise bathe my mind, that when I wake, clear-eyed may be my soul’s desire. (Fiona Macleod, Scotland, 19th century)

How shall I call upon my God and my Lord, when by the very act of calling upon him I would be calling him into myself? Is there any place within me into which my God might come? How should the God who made heaven and earth come into me? Is there any room in me for you, my Lord, my God? (St. Augustine, Africa, 5th century)

Praise be to Thee, Most Supreme God, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, All-pervading, the Only Being. Take us in Thy Parental Arms, raise us from the denseness of the earth, Thy Beauty do we worship, to Thee do we give willing surrender. (from Sufi morning prayers)
