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.
111 Shout praises to the Lord! With all my heart I will thank the Lord when his people meet. 2 The Lord has done many wonderful things! Everyone who is pleased with God’s marvelous deeds will keep them in mind. 3 Everything the Lord does is glorious and majestic, and his power to bring justice will never end.
4 The Lord God is famous for his wonderful deeds, and he is kind and merciful. 5 He gives food to his worshipers and always keeps his agreement with them. 6 He has shown his mighty power to his people and has given them the lands of other nations.
7 God is always honest and fair, and his laws can be trusted. 8 They are true and right and will stand forever. 9 God rescued his people, and he will never break his agreement with them. He is fearsome and holy.
10 Respect and obey the Lord! This is the first step to wisdom and good sense. God will always be respected
10 All creation will thank you, and your loyal people will praise you. 11 They will tell about your marvelous kingdom and your power. 12 Then everyone will know about the mighty things you do and your glorious kingdom. 13 Your kingdom will never end, and you will rule forever.
Our Lord, you keep your word and do everything you say. 14 When someone stumbles or falls, you give a helping hand. 15 Everyone depends on you, and when the time is right, you provide them with food. 16 By your own hand you satisfy the desires of all who live.
17 Our Lord, everything you do is kind and thoughtful, 18 and you are near to everyone whose prayers are sincere.
Thank you Lord
for being my helping hand.
That when I fall,
you pick me up;
you feed me –
you meet my every need,
whether I am aware of it
Thank you Lord,
that you always walk near me
and are always watching out for me.
Thank you for the people
you use to do that with you,
May I in turn
be part of your work
in supporting others.
