We Bring You Everything, and Tip it Out in Front of You: New prayers from the Iona Community, Wild Goose Publications

Here, in the ‘Celtic’ tradition, are prayers from members, associates and friends of the Iona Community for the whole of life: for starting an engine, for keeping us engaged and on the road to God’s Kingdom; for taking a daily walk, for refugees travelling dangerous seas; an Iona Abbey kitchen prayer for chopping carrots, making bread and sanitising surfaces, and a Harvest supper prayer of sharing; prayers for personal healing, and for our deeply wounded world; a prayer for self-knowledge, and another for doing the laundry and remembering ‘lost socks’ …

Contributors include: Tom Gordon, John Harvey, Jan Sutch Pickard, Peter Millar, Rosemary Power, David McNeish, David Osborne, Ewan Aitken, Anna Briggs, Elaine Gisbourne, Thom M Shuman, Chris Polhill, Neil Paynter and others.

Lord God …
we bring you everything,
and tip it out in front of you …

And now we pause a while in silence,
waiting for you to show us what we need to understand …
