World Prayer Gifts arose out of a respect and fascination for objects of prayer and contemplation – from all traditions. The genesis of World Prayer Gifts online seems an inevitable extension of this fascination. Our online journey begins with the St. Brigid’s Cross, a magnificent hand woven symbol from the timeless folk tradition of Ireland. An enduring tradition that continues to shape the people of this island, here and afar.
With the good fortune that comes from a St. Brigid’s Cross, we will soon add comparable handcrafted prayer objects from other world prayer traditions. Our motivation parallels an increasing need for contemplative and prayer practices. Practices that continue to bring profound spiritual and psychological growth to the world.
