Prayer of the World opens a window into an astonishingly beautiful world, showing life as a vast prayer in which we live and breathe. Through poetry and luminous photographs, it brings forth the voices of earth, sea, sky, and the entire web of life. From star fire to water's blue stillness, from eagle's soaring flight to canary's solemn teaching comes the plea: "Join the prayer; the web is greatly strained."

Kathleen Maia and Ken traveled to many sites in the United States and beyond-she with her pen and notebook, and he with his camera. As their pilgrimage continued, they realized that the poetry and photography together created a stunning whole, a vibrant expression of Earth's life and Earth's plea: "Give back to the web; add your voice to the song. Join the Prayer of the World."

As alarm, anxiety, and upheaval escalate across the globe, Prayer of the World raises not only Earth's lament, but also Earth's great hope: "All is connected in a living breathing web...the living pulse of energy that flows through all creation-each pulse a prayer."
