I heard about Pray-as-you-go at a retreat at Loyola Hall, Prescot, Lancashire, and am very grateful for it. I use it each morning on the bus going to work. My daughter gave me her cast-off mp3 player and that's how I listen. I had got out of the habit of regular daily prayer, and this has helped me to get back into praying and meditating. It gives my thoughts a God-ward direction at the beginning of the day. I appreciate the fact that the reading is repeated. I agree with other contributors that it would be great to havepray-as-you-go for Saturdays as well, and maybe Sundays - although being at the Mass is central on that day. Thank you so much.
We are very happy for this gift,this weekly meditation. It is marvelous. Our time of meditation is on the bicycle through the dark mornings here in Karlstad. Warm greetings and blessings.
I just found your iTunes podcast site and I think it is great. Also it is very well done. The music, the text, a question, and then a re-reading. Very simple. Very moving. And I am a religious Jew, and still I find your site one of the best out there! I have not been exposed to the New Testament, in a long time so I feel that it is a great way to learn.
I am 34 years old and a very regular listener. Less frequently I listen to Father Roderick's podcast (Daily Breakfast). From there I found other podcasts, including yours. I use it at work while programming.....;-), working in the garden. But, and for this I am very grateful, I by now especially see Pray-as-you-go as an important tool in my spiritual development. Next to my daily routine this means that whenever I create time for reflection, I regularly start with some episodes of Pray-as-you-go. For me going in this case is spiritual...not physical. I have found it a wonderful experience..... love, peace and well-being guaranteed after listening to Pray-as-you-go!, thank you..... !
I just wanted to write and thank you for Pray-as-you-go. I have been ill for the last five years with ME or CFS (different people call it different things). I am a Christian, but have been unable to go to church in all that time because of my condition. At first, I would go through the daily office every day and also do some intercession, but even that got too much for me. I also lost my ability to read all but the shortest of passages, and so my bible reading stopped at that time too. I was in something of a wilderness until a friend of my told me about Pray-as-you-go. It is perfect for me, as it is not too long and there is a bible reading every day. I find that having it read twice is very helpful, as my mind does not work or retain things as well as it ought. So I am just writing this to encourage you to continue to do this wonderful work. You don't know how much it means to people like me. It is my only act of worship and without you, there would be none, as indeed, there was before my friend introduced me. I am making a donation today as a token of my gratitude.
