Daily Devotions

We want to encourage you to find a way to pray, day by day.

In the Morning

I start each day with the Bible.

Over the years I have used many different resources. My favourites include:

At Lunchtime

We are using Prayer During The Day as the service order for our Sunday Livestream. It is very short, say 10-15 minutes and everything you need is included so you don’t even need a bible!

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.

Download it now on from the App Store or get it on Google Play.

At Night

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.
