At Christ Community, one of the things we’re trying to work through as a leadership team is how to establish some common, consistent spiritual disciplines that we can engage in together (besides our weekly Word and Sacrament gatherings).
I’ve looked at a few different daily prayer guides, from quite a few different traditions (Celtic, Catholic, Anglican, Presbyterian, for example), but haven’t really found one that resonates enough to "stick".
I just ordered a couple copies of Missio Dei‘s Breviary, which is available free online or for purchase in various forms. Missio Dei are in the Anabaptist stream, so they’re focused on the Sermon on the Mount and nitty-gritty discipleship issues, which I very much appreciate.
I ordered books because I have difficulty actually praying at a computer screen. Something about the physicality of touching and turning pages helps me pray. Come to think of it, something about physicality in itself helps me pray: walking, raising hands, turning pages, kneeling, etc.
What kinds of daily or weekly prayer disciplines have you found helpful?
