“I arise today
Through the strength of heaven –
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendour of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.”

Published by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge.
It is a lovely big, thick book, with over 450 pages of prayers of various flavours. I haven’t found many specifically Celtic prayers so far, but I have only dipped in to it really. I have it from the library, but I don’t think that a couple of weeks will be quite enough to make the most of this big book, so it is going on my wishlist.
