What’s the first thing you do when you go online? Check emails? Read the news? Play games? Listen to music? Write a blog?
Why don’t you begin your online routine with a prayer? Pray-as-you-go.org is a website that helps you start your online life with prayer and meditation with just one click. It combines music, scripture and points for reflection in a ten-minute session everyday. You also have the option to download each session to your portable digital audio player so you can pray on the move.
To set up a meditative mood, you can begin your session with a four-minute breathing exercise. Another option is to do the four-minute body exercise which can help you “develop the stillness, focus and attentiveness that you need.”
Before you shutdown your computer at the end of the day, it is spiritually uplifting to review your day with another short session of prayer and meditation. The Prayer of Review helps you recall how your day went and how God made himself manifest in your everyday life. The purpose of this prayer is for you “become more aware of the ways in which God has been present to you, the times when the Holy Spirit was drawing you towards life.”
