God Is Where You Are
What is prayer?
Prayer occupies a unique place among all human activity: almost universal, yet it is at the same time one of the most intensely personal of all human actions. This film explores both the outer manifestations of prayer—the postures, tone, language, messages, and attitudes of a prayer—and the inner state of the person praying. People appearing in God Is Where You Are pray as a regular part of daily life. They agreed to pray as they normally do within their religious tradition, and then to describe what personal meaning the prayer has for them. The result provides a powerful and unusual range of sights, sounds and stories that illuminate the practice of prayer, while leaving its essential mystery untouched.
