We want to encourage you to find a way to pray, day by day.
In the Morning
I start each day with the Bible.
Then starting on Easter day I suggest we read 40 Days with Jesus which will help us to think about the resurrection appearances.
Mike and Ali are also using this service each day at 12:00noon. So if you want to you could use the same prayers at the same time.
This is also available via the Time to Pray app for a smartphone or tablet.
At the end of the day I review the day with God. This is called the examen and comes from St Ignatius (1491-1556).
You can read Peter Grieg's Introduction to The Examen to learn more.
This has been one of the most formative spiritual practices in my life.
