Recently a friend pointed me in the direction of the Pray-as-you-go website. Below you find a description from their site of what they are providing. I’ve been using this for almost a week and I’ve got to tell you…I love it! If you have 10-13 minutes you can get in a very meaningful mini-session with God.
This would be ideal for a brief mid-day quiet time, while driving to work, or while on a walk or run. It could also be used in a small group setting. I’ve actually been incorporating it in my normal quiet times along with the other practices I use.
Although they do have an app, I recommend, if you intend to use it on your phone, to go directly to the website from the browser on your phone and bookmark it. The app is a bit quirky but the mobile version of the site works perfectly.
Here’s their description:
Pray as you go is a daily prayer session, designed for use on portable MP3 players, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc.
A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a ‘Thought for the Day’, a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer.
Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection.
Our aim is to help you to:
- become more aware of God’s presence in your life
- listen to and reflect on God’s word
- grow in your relationship with God
It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives, with material written by a number of Jesuits, both in Britain and further afield, and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola. Although the content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format.
Let me know what you think.
