I’ve created 7 audio/video guided prayer devotionals for you, and they will be released each evening this coming week, starting on Sunday night.
They’re each about 7 minutes, adapted from the Compline Prayer readings in the bookCeltic Daily Prayers. They’re meant to be prayed at the end of the day, before going to sleep. Here’s a video explaining a bit of why I felt led to create this project. Make sure to subscribe here to be notified as each devotional becomes available!
