Anne Lamott discusses Help, Thanks, Wow: The Three Essential Prayers (17.95). Readers have cherished Lamott’s funny and perceptive writing about her own faith. And in this new book, she has coalesced everything she knows about faith into three prayers—asking for assistance from a higher power, appreciating what we have that is good, and feeling awe at the world around us. Those prayers can get us through the day and show us the way forward. Lamott is the author of Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith and Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son’s First Year.
 
“[A] prayer manual for people who wouldn’t be caught dead reading prayer manuals… anybody who gets it as a holiday gift will likely just say, ‘Thanks. Wow.’” —Publishers Weekly

Anne Lamott claims the two best prayers she knows are: "Help me, help me, help me" and "Thank you, thank you, thank you." She has a friend whose morning prayer each day is "Whatever," and whose evening prayer is "Oh, well." Anne thinks of Jesus as "Casper the friendly savior" and describes God as "one crafty mother."
