There are a great many people now seeking to learn Cornish, and all are looking for ways to use it in their daily lives. One is through the age-old practice of daily prayer. This book has been compiled with two aims—to help you to learn Cornish, and to bring you closer to God in the process. Morning and Evening Prayer in this book follow a traditional format, and ancient prayers from the Celtic Church have been included whenever possible. A fixed psalm for Morning and Evening Prayer is used each day to make things simple, because that’s how prayer should be. Collects have been included for use during the Church year, as well as a list of Celtic saints’ days.   Yma lies huny i’n tor’-ma owth assaya desky Kernowek, hag ow whelas fordhow rag ûsya an tavas i’ga bêwnans pùb dëdh oll. Onen a’n fordhow-na yw an ûsadow coth a bejadow kenyver jorna. Yma dew dowl gans an lyver-ma—gul gweres dhe dus ow tesky Kernowek ha’ga dry nessa dhe Dhuw kefrÿs. Yma Pejadow Myttyn ha Pejadow Gordhuwher i’n lyver-ma ow sewya an ordyr tradycyonal, hag y feu formys a bejadow coth dhia an Eglos Keltek gorrys aberveth pan o hedna possybyl. Udn salm yn udnek re beu appoyntys rag pùb dëdh a’n seythen, may fe taclow sempel— rag gwell yw an pejadow mars yw sempel. Yma Collectys dhe ûsya dre vledhen an Eglos i’n lyver inwedh, ha rol a dhegolyow nebes sens Keltek.
St Piran 5 March
Almighty God, the light of the faithful and shepherd of souls, who brought your servant Piran to Cornwall’s shores to feed your sheep by his word and guide them by his example: help us to keep the faith which he taught and to follow in his footsteps; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
  Peran Sans 5 Merth
A Dhuw Ollgalosek, golow an re lel ha bugel an enevow, te a dhros dha servont Peran dhe gostys Kernow may halla va maga dha dheves der y eryow ha’ga gedya der y ensompel; gwra agan gweres ow sensy an fëdh a wruga desky dhyn ha dhe sewya olow y dreys; dre Jesu Crist agan Arlùth. Amen.
