This lovely volume contains a rich variety of graces - brief enough to fit into the busiest life, elegant enough for the most formal occasion. Compiled by one of Britain's foremost prayer collectors, Dorothy M. Stewart, the graces are arranged in categories to make choosing easy: short and sweet; sung graces; derived from the Bible; blessings plus; thank you for our food; the Jewish tradition; national heritage; special occasions; the funny ones; children's graces; graces by the great and good; graces from times past; remembering those in need; graces from other faiths; Latin graces; and, grace after food. Whatever you are looking for, you are sure to find it here.
