Have you ever wanted to start bedtime prayers or maybe try something new? Pray-As-You-Go has revised their Examen prayers to include variations for children and teens. The Examen is a simple Ignatian prayer discipline that asks you to recall things that happened in your day and ask yourself, “Where was God in this?” Click on the “Examen-Audio” link above to check it out. I would recommend introducing this with older children (7+) anytime, but particularly in Lent.
The Pray-As-You-Go website and podcast is primarily to help busy adults incorporate prayer at any time, even while commuting! Every day they provide a unique 12 minute guided meditation on scripture. Instead of silence, there is usually music. It’s a gentle introduction into contemplative prayer and theological thinking.
