Do you pray? What does prayer mean to you? Is it about real life and real faith? Is it inspirational? Expressed with love, conditions, doubt, or strength? Such questions have drawn hundreds of responses from young people throughout the world: honest and upfront, in their own voice and Vision. Through powerful prose and expressive art, this collection shows how daily life is in many ways, like "Prayer."One look through the strikingly designed pages and full-color art and you'll see that this book is an awesome collaboration by young people, ages 6-25, from around the world. Like prayers that you might express yourself, the prayers in this book reflect the experiences, needs, wants, joys, and hopes of youth from over eighteen countries including the United States, France, Italy, Holland, Germany, Greece, Spain, United Kingdom, Brazil, Belgium, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Japan, Australia, Northern Ireland, Canada, Bosnia, Ecuador, Croatia, and the Czech Republic.Both dramatic and down-to-earth, simple and sophisticated, these biographical moments of prayer will strike a chord in your life. They may even call forth your own prayer: relevant, personal, creative, passionate, thankful."Prayer" shows in verse and visual that the youth of the world have a need to be heard, to have a voice in what true prayer sounds like, looks like, and feels like.Famous for his work for the Benetton company, photographer Olivero Toscani complements "Prayer" with both submitted and commissioned art.
