We usually think of stories in traditional ways - anchored in written (sometimes spoken) words and unfolding between the covers of books. Similarly, we tend to think of prayer as a formal, scripted act that takes place in specific spaces and contexts. Storytellers: Like a Prayer invites you to reconsider your own perceptions of stories and prayer. Let us take you on a journey to discover (or rediscover) means of connecting by joining artists, singers, song writers and poets as they share how they use their stories as prayers.
