Welcome to ‘Practising Prayer'

If you’ve been journeying with Pray As You Go for a number of years now, you might be a little curious about the spirituality and format of our prayers. We use something called ‘Ignatian Spirituality’.
There are so many exercises for improving our physical health and wellbeing. St Ignatius of Loyola wrote what he called the Spiritual Exercises, a variety of ways of praying to develop our spiritual health and wellbeing, our relationship with God and the world. Just like physical exercise, if we talk about it but don’t actually engage in any exercise, it won’t be very fruitful! So, with this series, we introduce exercises that you may find it useful to practise – and the more you practise, the more benefits you will feel.
This “school of prayer” is an audio course to guide you through some of the key practices of this way of prayer. If you’d like to hear a little more about St Ignatius Loyola, we have a quick audio session about him, or you can find out delve deeper on the Jesuits in Britain website… If not, just continue through to the first exercise…
