About this deal

After the scripture readings and meditations, there is an opportunity to pray whatever is on your mind and heart, offering to God the concerns of the day, your personal needs and prayers for other people. the Kindle Celtic Daily Prayer has been great as we have shared it so we can all see the same morning prayer page. Some find it helpful to make a point of saying it whilst moving around (whilst preparing lunch for instance) as a reminder to pray as we work and work as we pray.

The bonus for me [other than the beauty of its prayers] is that timewise it's a lot more user friendly for someone with a busy schedule [that'll be most of us then ;o)]. The Northumbria Community is a dispersed network of people, hugely diverse, from different backgrounds, streams and edges of the Christian faith, united in their desire to embrace and express an ongoing exploration into a new way for living.This book combines our earlier Celtic Daily Prayer and Celtic Night Prayer books, and adds to them fresh material born out of the further development of the Northumbria Community’s ways of worship in the intervening years since these books were published. This is a rich treasury that is loved and trusted by individuals, ministers, families, groups and communities across the world. A friend of mine suggested that I get this book to help with my daily quiet time, because I was struggling to find something to hang my routine on without becoming stale. We load an article each month entitled Daily Readings during…… which provides information on the selected readings for the current month. Many (especially those whose church tradition usually scorns such gestures) find that making the sign of the cross at this juncture helps to reinforce the significance of the words.

Some find that the mornings tend to be too rushed for lengthy silences and that this can best wait till evening prayer. Thoughts, prayers and readings for every day of the year, both morning and evening, with Celtic themes and inspiration, from the Northumbria Community. I love the rhythm of this liturgy, the way the prayers work deep into your heart and mind (as you use them more and more), going with you throughout your day, and bringing you back again.

Saint’s Day February 1st: Brigid (450-523)Eight years before the death of Patrick (see March 17th), a girl was born to a pagan Irish chieftain and a Christian slave woman from the land of the Picts. My only complaint is -- and it's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 -- that the paperback is soon losing its morning-prayer pages since I refer to them everyday, so I wonder if the hardback wouldn't be a better choice. The relevant meditation for the day of the month follows, and repetition of them month by month turns them into familiar friends – they are worth learning by heart.

I usually do the morning prayer myself wherever I am at home or working at a hotel away or waiting in my car.

I had hoped for it sooner as I was on sabbatical 2018/19 and had to leave the physical copy at home. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.The words of this blessing are said, or sung, as part of the Morning Prayer of the Northumbria Community. Daily Office (and indeed all the liturgies in this prayerbook) are best begun and ended with a period of reflective silence; and by affirming that the prayers are said in ‘the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Our lives are usually too full of noise, so this is the ideal moment of the day to experience real silence. The words of the Daily Office are drawn from a variety of sources, such as St Patrick’s Breastplate, Teresa’s Bookmark, Columba’s Blessing, etc – and from Psalm 27 for Morning Prayer, Psalm 90 for Midday Prayer and Psalm 130 for Evening Prayer. Also available are Braille, Large Print (18 pt) and Giant Print (24pt) versions of the words of the Office and a separate booklet with the words of the Meditations from Celtic Daily Prayer Book 2.
