Prepare My Prayer is a unique attempt to develop a dedicated language for the worship of the heart, the language of prayer. In a unique style, inspired by recipe books, this volume offers a variety of concise and practical recipes for prayer by one of Israel’s most popular religious educators.
Prepare My Prayer
For those for whom regular prayer is a struggle and for anyone looking to supplement their prayer practice, Rabbi Dov Singer’s Prepare My Prayer provides a profound collection that encourages the individual to consider all aspects of prayer and offers tools to enhance prayer through a series of short entries. Singer brings together pieces that span the Jewish canon — from texts from the Tanakh, to halakhic voices, to modern Israeli poetry — to inspire our journey. And to this list, he adds his own voice. Each entry includes Singer’s own poetic musings on the topic and, most powerfully, his own list of suggested activities to make prayer more embodied and impactful. Working in Israel, Singer is an educator who aims to incorporate Hasidic thinkers into religious discourse. Prepare My Prayer provides an accessible and compelling entrée into his thinking and has something that will speak to Jews across the religious spectrum. He sidesteps some of the more academic and theoretical considerations when it comes to prayer; instead, he speaks directly to the heart. Anyone who interacts with this book will consider prayer from a renewed angle.
