THE Bishop of St Asaph, the Rt Revd Gregory Cameron, introduced Daily with God, a new prayer manual for the Church in Wales. He told the meeting how, as a young Christian, he had learned how to establish his own prayer life: on the school bus, a 20-minute journey each way, using a booklet, In His Presence, which had a pattern of prayer and suggested text.

“We felt we needed a prayer resource to set out some of the great prayers we have inherited in the Church of Wales,” he said, speaking of the richness of the Anglican tradition of prayer. The book includes short forms for use in morning, evening, and night prayer, commonly used canticles, prayers, and key texts, general thanksgivings, a suggested cycle of prayer, and a basic weekly lectionary.

It is intended for use as a stand-alone for saying morning and evening prayer when travelling away from home, and also contains guidance for Ignatian spirituality and prayers for every season. Two of the items were authorised during lockdown: short orders of prayer for those who were unable to attend communion or a funeral in person.

“It authentically belongs to the Church in Wales. It is bilingual throughout, and has a wealth of original Welsh material,” Bishop Cameron said. “It is a particular joy to me that some of the Welsh texts are not translated into English — they are a distinctly Welsh inheritance.

“This book could provide a rich resource for the future for many years yet. I believe it is an invaluable text, and I commend it to you to give out to congregation members, new members, and confirmands.”

The book, costing £12.99, was available at the meeting, where it was selling out fast. It is also available from: churchinwales.org.uk
