Overview

People in a prayer circle may live next door, or they may live thousands of miles apart, but when they pray together they form a soulful connection that defies distance. They may be Christians, Jews, or Buddhists; they may pray for peace, health, and well-being, for friends and for complete strangers; they may have come together through a crisis, a life-change, an illness, a new relationship, but they come together to support each other through prayer. This book of true stories examines the power of collective praying, and how it can transform forever the lives of those bound together in the common experience of meditation and prayer.
