A Rhythm of Prayer, beautifully edited by Sarah Bessey, is a collection of prayers from diverse female voices. And these prayers are rhythmic! There are prayers that could fit in an Episcopal songbook, and prayers that would be at home in a protest march. There are poems, letters, confessions. There were a few moments while reading that reminded me of the first time reading the whole Bible and coming across some of the more “spicy” stories and thinking “wait, this is in the Bible?!?” One note I wrote in the margins was: “wait, is this a prayer or a rant?!?”
