"The prayers reflect the many moods and seasons of grief. I lovingly share them with you just as I would a pot from my kitchen, a paintbrush from my tool shed or a pencil from the desk where I write. They are yours to draw strength from. The tools that will lead you to peace are courage, positive thinking and prayer….And of these tools, prayer is perhaps the most powerful. Prayer is your bridge to God, a limitless source of help and strength." —From the Introduction

The prayers in Toward Peace were born out of Beverly S. Gordon's own struggle to accept the death of her life partner, her own search for peace. She penned this simple, wise and nourishing book of 33 prayers for those experiencing the trauma and turmoil of grief associated with the death of a spouse. Prayers deal with issues common to widows and widowers—loneliness, memories, anger, blame, guilt, healing and envy. And because the widowed in the early stages of grieving often find it difficult to concentrate, the prayers are deliberately brief and written in simple language. Each prayer begins with an appropriate Bible verse.
