Celtic Daily Devotions for March ’16
See what great love the Father has lavished on us,
That we should be called children of God!
And that is what we are! 1 John 3 v 1
As we move through Lent towards Easter you are encouraged to take time each day and use the devotional guide overleaf – which is based on the Catching the Wave booklet for most of this month – and then we conclude by looking at 1 Corinthians 15. It is one of Paul’s great chapters to other believers and full of truly great truths for those who are in Christ Jesus. The Devotions are but one way to feed on God’s Word in the morning, at midday and in the evening….. to Pray with Him continually through your day…and even to share with others the treasures or hurdles you discover.
The Church website and Facebook page (even on a handy mobile) provide a fuller daily devotional page. However it all follows the pattern below which the information fits into, based on the Kirk’s origins of the Celtic and Northumbrian traditions.

LORD God, Father God
As we journey on in life
May we know Your peace, Your love, Your hope
And the knowledge that You are holding us,
Encircling us, guiding us
This day and for ever.
Through Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen
The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed be Your Name.
Your kingdom come
Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our debts
As we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom, the power and the glory.
For ever and ever
