Author Biography

Chris Saade experienced firsthand the devastation of the Lebanese war, where he was involved in peace work for over a decade and deepened his profound connection with God by dealing with tragedy through prayer, service, and learning to celebrate life unconditionally. His peace-building led him to develop a great respect for diversity, a passion for justice, and to subsequently direct three non-profit organizations. Saade teaches courses on the spirituality of the heart, authenticity, justice, and inclusion. A former therapist, he now offers personal, spiritual, and psychological coaching and has led more than two hundred psychological and spiritual retreats. He is the co-director of The Olive Branch Center with his wife, Jessie Thompson (www.theolivebranchcenter.net).

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Prayers for Peace and Justice by Chris Saade is a collection of prayers that will bring peace and positive changes to everyone's life. These prayers connect readers to God; intimately, closely and powerfully. These conversations with God are sacred and will transform lives and bring about changes in the universe. The prayers are respectful of all traditions and readers can also find the presence of ancient spiritual perspectives of life in them. The passion for prayer kindles love in the hearts of people, and gives them the courage and determination to stand up for peace and justice and have a loving bond with the universe.

The book is uplifting and encourages readers to reach out to God and have a fulfilling relationship with the Divine. The importance of prayers to nurture us, feed us, and sustain us is made very clear through this book. Inner peace and global peace will enable everyone to appreciate and celebrate the beauty of life, and the author discusses those factors through the book. The prayers shared are simple and beneficial in opening the hearts and souls of readers, liberating them and helping them to reach the global community. I found the book inspirational. It can be used as a form of meditation and also like a spiritual journey that can be completed in a stipulated period of time. The author's passion for peace and justice in the universe is evident through his words.
