God in Every Day: A Whispered Prayer


Deirdre M Powell

‘ a very practical book; it will help the reader to develop a scriptural outlook on life”   Spirituality

‘Practical and accessible…a combination of Ignatian spirituality and Lectio Divina. Powell’s writing is light and simple, but that does certainly not preclude substance and depth.’ The Furrow

‘A poet at heart, the author has created a sacred space, where the inner landscape of the human heart, so often lost or unexplored in the busyness of daily life, can be refreshed and restored on this route of guided enlightenment’.   Intercom

‘This is a book that will gently warm the cockles of your heart, and deepen your understanding of daily Christian experience, and of finding God in all.’’   Catholic South West

This book encourages us to pay attention to what is happening in our own hearts and about how we can find God in the activities of our everyday lives. It sets out to aid the reader in their prayer life and help them to experience God in ordinary life by exploring usual and unusual images of God.

Some of the images are familiar, such as God as Parent and God as Shepherd, and some are less common. Images of God as Chef (where we find God in food), God as Artist (where we find God in art), and God as Gardener (where we find God in the garden) bring home to us how God is all around us and present in the everyday. Reflections with suitable scripture references are also provided
