In the Celtic way of prayer, the divine glory was intertwined with everyday events. The modern prayers in this book beautifully recapture that tradition. They were composed in a small parish in northern England to help individuals and groups refocus life’s simple rhythms toward the worship of God. This volume suggests prayers for individual devotions and for corporate worship, as well as for quiet days and retreats.
