Prayer has always been an essential part of the Toc H way of life. It played an important part in the daily life at Talbot House during World War I and since then it has been an important part of every Toc H gathering. Tubby Clayton, the Founder of the Toc H Movement, encouraged every Toc H member to know this prayer and to use it. The current version of the Toc H Prayer is:
‘O God, you called Toc H into being in a time of great need; you call its members to see their duty as your will; teach us to live together in love and joy and peace, to resist any form of bitterness, to persevere in the face of discouragement, to be thankful for the blessings we receive from you and to leap with joy to any task for others. May your goodness flow through all that we do and work for the extension of your kingdom in the hearts and minds of all people; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
