This design was printed by hand on a 100% cotton flour sack tea towel in California, USA. The towel measures roughly 27x27" and the design itself is 12" tall. It is recommended to wash the towel on a lower temperature and tumble dry low to preserve longevity of the design.
The print is an excerpt of the Prayer of Humble Access from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and reads:
"We do not presume to come to this thy Table, O merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteousness, but in thy manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under thy Table. But thou art the same Lord, whose property is always to have mercy."
Each towel comes with an insert card that shares the story behind the design. It reads:
"This is the prayer that we pray every Sunday morning before we walk forward for communion. From the very first time I heard it, I knew I needed it in my home as a reminder of how merciful and steadfast our God is. There is something beautiful about joining our voices with Christians who have prayed these same words for hundreds of years - proclaiming His perfect mercy over our unworthiness.
This tea towel hangs in our kitchen as a reminder that no matter how many times we fail, striving to measure up, His promise is always, always, always to have mercy on His children. As you use it to wipe up crumbs under your table, look forward to that promised day when you will sit at the banquet of the King."
