The simple act of praying 

Wisdom, inspiration and prayer: As recent scientific research shows, the simple act of praying can be emotionally, spiritually, and even physically healing. With Prayers for Hard Times, author Becca Anderson offers solace in bringing together the wisdom of great thinkers, spiritual leaders, and writers who have faced difficulty and learned from it.

Sacred and inspirational sources: This audio daybook draws from sacred sources such as the Bible, the Torah, Buddhist and Native American texts, as well as inspirational writings of:

  • Joan Didion
  • Elizabeth Gilbert
  • Maya Angelou
  • Rumi
  • Mark Nepo
  • Harriet Tubman
  • Dave Eggars
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • Anne Morrow Lindberg
  • Martin Luther King Jr.

Consolation and renewal: Together, these wise words create a tapestry of consolation and renewal for those times when it all seems “too much.” In a world that feels increasingly fragile and, at times, fractured, people need answers and prayers. Becca Anderson’s collection focuses on prayers for a wide range of life challenges, from the personal to the global. Prayers for Hard Times covers issues facing individuals such as loss of loved ones, illness, anxiety, divorce, depression, and addiction, as well as those challenges communities face in natural disasters and violence. 

The writers in Anderson’s devotional address the world at large, as well, with words of hope and help for global poverty, hunger, war, and the environmental. Prayers for Hard Times offers readers solace, comfort, and support, drawing from the wisdom of every era, every major faith and tradition, and the important voices of those who have lived through such experiences themselves.

This is a beautiful collection of inspirational material brought to us by Becca Anderson, beautifully narrated by Rinelle Harkin. I really enjoyed this, and I know it will be helpful to a great many people out there. I hope and pray that mankind will choose good over evil, and books such as this are a powerful message of love. Great job! Definitely recommended:)

I have a greater appreciation of all the religions of the world through all the ages!
The thoughts that touched me are: "We are children of one God," "He who has God lacks for nothing," and "My religion is kindness." The Dalai Lama

Rinelle Harkin did a great job narrating!
