Help, Thanks, Wow:
Three Essential Prayers

Anne Lamott
In conversation with Father Gregory Boyle
December 10, 2012

It is these three prayers – asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating the goodness in our lives, and feeling awe at the world around us- that Lamott believes can guide us through the day and illuminate the way forward. As one of today’s most trusted authorities on life lessons, Lamott coalesces everything she has learned about prayer through her own everyday trials of faith, and explores how others have embraced these same ideas.
