This new book by Jonathan Aitken is written in a style and format similar to Psalms for People Under Pressure. The formula has proved extremely popular. Here are fifty selected prayers, each accompanied by a spiritual reflection and personal, autobiographical comment. The prayers fall neatly into categories. Jonathan Aitken has been collecting prayers over the years and has written some of his own. This book draws on both. Aitken reached the gates of hell when he fell from power and was condemned to prison for perjury and corruption. This is a man who knows pressure at first hand - the pressure of disgrace. In his earlier life, however, the author was a city financier and Government Minister. An audience Jonathan Aitken always has in mind is all those people who live highly pressured lives - over whom hang targets, budgets, and five-year plans like the Sword of Damocles. People should never be too busy to pray.
