Format: Paperback
Celtic daily Prayer is just that.... a collection (a large collection) of daily readings and prayers that seeks to not instruct, but dwell with the reader as they enter times of prayer. Most books of this kind make the mistake of trying to subversively teaching some method, but this book clearly states its foundations and history in the introduction and then encourages the reader to stop reading and begin praying. It is coming out of a monastic tradition so some evangelicals might struggle with the catholic (both Roman and Anglo)bend, but the point is to pray. So while exercises and forms are suggested they can be used in endless ways that seek only for us to quiet ourselves and seek the face of Jesus. The first part is set up with what are prayer service outlines (good for personal or group worship) and the second part is made of short daily readings to draw the mind into thought and reflection. A good friend had this book sitting on a table and after reading it for about five minutes I knew this would be a welcome book in my own closet time. It is a kind of helpful friend, that I recommend to others.

Although some of the sections are liturgical in nature, this collection of prayers, devotionals, and historical bits( from Celtic evangelical 'saints') is full of encouragement. Much of the writings and daily devotionals bring deeper communion with God with challenging questions. A beautiful gift book as well.

HASH(0x9af95324) out of 5 stars Brilliant start to the day Dec 27 2010
By Dr. K. E. Patrick - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

This was definitely the answer!

A short set of liturgy with picturesque language ("Christ as a light, Christ as a shield" for example)followed by readings designated for each day of the year, both from Scripture and poems or thoughts from medieval religious figures (such as Aidan or Cuthbert or the like), then a time of intercessions that are open to your own materials or impromptu prayer, closing with blessings.

It takes about 15 minutes if I have a short time of intercessions.

My only complaint -- and it's why I gave it only 4 stars -- is 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. In the meantime, I'm tempted to take them out and laminate them for daily use, saving the rest of the book for their fascinating, inspiring readings.

HASH(0x9af47120) out of 5 stars Celtic Daily Prayer helpful April 10 2014
By S. S. Johnson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of good material for spiritual growth! I particularly have enjoyed the information about the saints' days -- listing of whose day is when and a bit of information about each one. These "saints" come from many different times and places but have something to share with anyone who wants to grow closer to God.
HASH(0x9af44600) out of 5 stars Gives me a mystical "circle of life," mental, spiritual and physical. An awesome soulful journey. May 4 2015
By Rob Natiuk - Published on
Format: Paperback
For over five years this book has been my treasure that keeps yielding its jewels whenever I go to it. Poems, psalms, scriptures, meditations, with all that variety and so much spiritual depth. Its richness comes from so many sources -- yes, the Bible and spiritual leaders. But also great writers, preachers and mystics from the ages, all the way from Homer to Thomas Merton -- Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, and those for whom labels cannot be attached.

All this has been gathered for us by the Northumbria Community for our devotions and prayers, morning, noon and evening. They are arranged in cycles for private and community use each day. A full two years of devotions convey the rhythms of the inner and outer life. Then there are precious graces for the celebrations of birth, rebirth, marriage, growing older, and bereavement.

These devotions span centuries and give me the sense of the circle of physical and spiritual life. Sometimes I might forget about this book for a short while, but when I go back to it, it is a whole new life and a bright treasure chest all over again!
