The great emphasis of Celtic prayer is on the glory of God as revealed in the everyday activities of life, and the prayers in this beautiful devotional book are designed to become part of a daily pattern of prayer, reminding us of God's presence with us at all times.
Inspired by the Celtic tradition of Christianity, this daily office combines a suggested Bible reference, a comment about a notable historical Celtic Christian such as Columba and a quote to help with meditation. It is a book that can both be used by the individual, or by a Church or Christian community. Guidelines for moving prayer and evening prayer are also included.
The rhythm of life on Holy Island where David Adams lives is ordered not only by the tides and the seasons but by the daily ringing of the church bell for prayer. Out of this tradition has risen his series of four daily prayer rituals that strengthen life.
This beautifully illustrated daily prayer guide, which offers simple outlines for morning and night prayer, draws on the insights of Celtic spirituality to attune us living as God's children in today's world. Original prayers and sensitively chosen Bible texts for meditation enable us to recover what the Celts knew instincively: that God is present throughout his creation and that as human beings, we are made in his image and carry within us the seeds of holiness and the potential of glory.
