About The Book

A gorgeously illustrated collection of contemporary prayers, affirmations, and meditations for anyone in need of guidance, reassurance, and peace.

Everyone has little moments of frustration, fear, or sadness, often littered throughout the day. Whether you are religious, spiritual, or just in need of some support, it is often in these small moments, as much as in the big ones, that we would benefit from the presence of a higher power.

This open-minded book has simple prayers and meditations to help you connect. The prayers are nondenominational and encourage you, no matter your creed, to take a moment, breathe, and reconnect with the support that is out there, waiting for you.

As a conceptual artist, Hannah Burr has used her art to stand in for a deity or higher power, providing accessible and beautiful pieces to help you on your spiritual journey. Take Contemporary Prayers to Whatever Works with you on the go or keep it by your bedside. This versatile book is designed to be a spiritual companion whenever you need a little inner harmony.
