Abstract

The three prayers, the Shema, the Lord's Prayer, and al-Fatiha, lie at the heart of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions, respectively. The authors of this essay are committed and practicing members of their faiths. This essay brings the three prayers into dialogue by process of comparative theology and comparative experience. The three prayers are presented in both their theological aspects and their liturgical settings. The three authors then observe how the encounter with the other prayers has enhanced their understanding and appreciation of their own prayer.
