Prayers on the Move App

Just briefly popping by to recommend the Prayers on the Move App.

I believe this is meant to be an ‘entry level’ introduction to prayer, but if, like me you have limited concentration or stamina, this is a great way to pray.  One sentence prayers, one a day, as easy as that.  There is even a reminder that you can set.

I found the “read aloud” option really helpful to still me and give the space – one minute.  Anyone can manage that! (Though as an aside, I know it’s a common technique used in praying, but not everyone can “Take a deep breath in” and I found that a bit off-putting)

Each prayer is beautifully illustrated, though I did wonder if that made it a bit ‘girly’?  Each prayer is also easily shared via social media, and the ones I have seem to have been well received.  As with any written prayer, some will mean more to you than others, but it’s a great start

There are also many links to other resources to take you further into prayer.

I’ve found this really helpful at a time I’ve needed it.

 

Voices Through Holy Week and Easter

2016-01-19 12.25.24

I’m sad to say that nothing new is likely to be posted on this blog for the foreseeable future, but just to let you know that Voices Through Holy Week and Easter is now available.  This is a collection of work I’ve produced over the years, now available in this booklet form.

It is an ideal resource for Easter, covering bible passage from Palm Sunday to The Resurrection from all four gospels.  In each passage we hear the voice of the character questioning, exploring, finding the truth – in themselves and Jesus, ultimately leading to the question ‘What about me?’

Available from Moorleys or contact me on voicesthrough@outlook.com. Price £4.50 + postage

Thank you again to everyone for your support – for this blog and for these two booklets which seem to have rounded off the work of the blog over the years.

I’m not sure when I’m going to be able to post some of my lectionary based blogs again, so for the moment I will link to what I’ve previously written on this Sundays readings.  Hope that is some help.
