Pray As You Go
Daily Prayer for your MP3 player
“Pray-as-you-go” is a 10-12 minute daily
prayer session which can be heard online through your computer, or downloaded
to a portable MP3 player. It is intended to help you pray while
traveling to and from work, study, etc. A new prayer session is
produced every day. It is not a 'Thought for the Day', a sermon
or a Bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer combining
music, Scripture and some questions for reflection. Although the
content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format.
