Can Americans find any common ground, any expressions of faith that might unite us as a people? There is no better place to ask the question than on college and university campuses where students of all faiths and those who have none interact on a daily basis and seek to build a community. We Ask Your Blessing is a collection of prayers offered on various occasions by religious leaders on campuses all across America. When something important happens and a diverse community gathers in response, when praying seems the natural thing to do, what can be said? Particularly on the private campuses, the task of finding just the right words falls to chaplains and deans of religious life. Here are one hundred prayers, offered by twenty-six college and university chaplains, which can be read for private devotions or studied as expressions of hope for the spiritual unity of the whole human family.
