Knowing Jesus is more than just studying this history about him. It is being with him. He is the living creator who walked on the earth, showed us how to live, died on our behalf because of our violence against him and beat the power of death. This is our leader, our creator who embraces us as we are and offers to transform us as we cooperate with him and choose to walk with him.
These are some of the resources I use as spiritual disciplines alone and in community to take time and listen to my Lord and creator.
Pray as you go (Follow this link)
Pray as you go is a daily prayer session, designed for use on portable MP3 players, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc.
A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a ‘Thought for the Day’, a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer.
Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection.
Our aim is to help you to:
- become more aware of God’s presence in your life
- listen to and reflect on God’s word
- grow in your relationship with God
It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives, with material written by a number of Jesuits, both in Britain and further afield, and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola. Although the content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format.
