A large collection of prayers and liturgies arranged in two main sections and then further sub-divided.
"The idea for 'Lifting Women's Voices' first arose from the popularity of an earlier volume entitled 'Women's Uncommon Prayers', published by Morehouse at the beginning of the new millennium. 'Women's Uncommon Prayers', which included extraordinary prayers by women in the United States about women's life experiences, was the first of its kind to gather prayers by hundreds of Episcopal women through a grassroots invitation for submissions. .... 'Lifting Women's Voices' broadened the work of 'Women's Uncommon Prayers' by intentionally seeking the voices of Anglican women and girls worldwide as they pray their experiences of global concerns and envision a way forward for the welfare of God's creation". -- Acknowledgements.
