In her introduction to this anthology, Angela Ashwin notes: "Prayer is God's gift to us, a banquet of good things to feed our inner life, as we respond to the invitation to his feast of peace, forgiveness, challenge and love." The selections here could be used alone, with another person, or with a group.

The paperback is divided into 16 thematic chapters including Our Relationship with God, Praise and Thanksgiving, In Times of Difficulty, Prayers for Forgiveness, Personal Relationships, Intercession, Prayers in a Healing Ministry, Death and Dying, Prayers in Quietness, Morning Prayers, Evening and Night Prayers, Grace at Meals, Blessings, The Christian Year (Special Occasions and Themes), Prayers for Use by Children, and Prayers for Use by Teenagers.

The material ranges broadly and moves freely through Christian history with prayers by St. Teresa of Avila, St. Augustine, John Wesley, Janet Morley, William Temple, and many others. Here is an example of a contemporary prayer by David Adam:

"Lord increase
My zest for living
My vision of glory
My hearing of your call
My grasp on reality
My response to your love
My sensitivity to others
My gentleness to creation
My taste for wonder
My love for you."
