Praying Like A Woman is the expression of one woman's journey through life and faith, yet its themes of struggle, suffering, and joy, are universal. It is both intensely personal, and also appealing and relevant to all women. 'My hope is that whoever picks up this book may be encouraged - to pray as and who they are, towards who they may yet become.' Nicola Slee. The collection contains prayers, poems, songs, psalms, canticles, litanies, laments and creeds, as well as personal reflections. The areas covered include traditional areas for prayer, but also diverge into more specific themes, particularly relevant for women - such as the body and health. Praying Like A Woman is ideal for women who want to explore and develop their faith. The author hopes it will help other women to live into the experience of being a woman, in the particular time and place in which they find themselves, in the eyes of others and of God. "" The] poems and prayers bear witness to a faith of considerable depth and raw honesty, as she holds her God to account for her own sufferings and those of women throughout the world and across time. And then comes joy - exuberant as the spring, and as unexpected as the resurrection."" Janet Morley (author of All Desires Known)

Luke 1:37 says: "With God, all things are possible." "All things" means all things. Regardless of your situation or condition, all things are possible to them that believe. God is waiting for you to turn your impossibilities into testimonies to the glory of God. Prayer Woman seeks to stimulate the faith of girls and women and help them to believe all that is written in the Scriptures. We have been called to glory and dominion. The world we live in today has been so infested with humanism and unbelief that the believer's faith seemed to have been paralyzed; some choose to believe the report of ungodly men more than God's report in His unfailing word. Prayer Woman is for all women and girls in the family of God who want to take back their destiny from the controlling hands of the devil. It is for women who intend to stand in the gap for their families, churches, and areas of influence. Standing in the gap implies committing to enforce God's will in our circumstances by speaking up and praying as the spirit of God directs us. Prayer Woman stirs us to pray and to also build our prayer vocabulary. Author Lill Odhigu explains that we have powerful spiritual weapons available to us including the name and blood of Jesus and the Word and Love of God among many others. By using Prayer Woman to help us with our prayers, we can reclaim the spiritual world waiting for us.

Baader examines changes in practices of prayer and synagogue worship, rabbinic writings that encouraged men to cultivate a Judaism shaped by feminine values, the transformation of exclusively male philanthropic organizations into modern voluntary organizations in which men and women participated, and the new roles assumed by women as educators, activists, and religious writers. By documenting the expansion of women's spaces and women's roles in bourgeoisie Judaism and tracing the feminization of Jewish men's religious practices, Baader provides fresh insights into the gender organization of traditional Jewish culture and modern German middle-class society."--BOOK JACKET.
