One Earth One Spirit
Prayers from Many Faiths, August 1, 2004
Earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness
as dry fields weep with rain.
The prayers in One Earth, One Spirit are from the following faiths
and cultures: Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Ojibwa, Sikh,
Taoist, Tewa Pueblo, Ute and Zuni. In every country and culture,
children say prayers in order to express their innermost thoughts
and to comfort themselves with beautiful words. The last few pages
of this book have notes about the prayers. You can read about the
Zuni prayer and how it is taken from the ancient Night Chant of the
Zuni or read about the reasons for certain prayers, like how they
acknowledge the interdependence of human beings.
The prayers help children to connect with something greater than
themselves. The prayers can be read like poetry and you might
remember a few from your own childhood. This would be a perfect book
to read before bed as it presents prayers that would bring comfort
to a child.
The author, Tessa Strickland, was born in England and graduated from
Cambridge University. She specialized in theology and ancient
