What is unique about Praying at the Speed of Love?

Praying at the Speed of Love is a biweekly podcast filled with REAL conversations with REAL people about REAL prayer. After 5,000 years of prayer proscribed by patriarchy, we are ready for prayers that cherish the body, embrace all hearts, expand the mind, and enchant the soul. Join bestselling author and prayer artist, Janet Conner, as she and her famous guests dive into deep, intimate—even outrageous—conversations about their personal experiences with whole new kinds of prayer.
