The prayers of the righteous, are prayers that carry sorrows and hopes on the wings of faith, resonating through time and across faiths. Instead of being grandiose declarations, they are sincere whispers that come from a place of vulnerability and trust, looking for comfort and a connection to something bigger than oneself.

These prayers are not standard, nor are they limited to a particular language or custom. They flourish within the human content, which is composed of several religious strands. They may be recited amid the lively bustle of a temple or whispered in the seclusion of a desert cave. They can be written on paper or carved into hearts, finding expression in every sob, every tear, and every heartbeat of a soul in need.
