Sites for prayer and reflection
Here's a brief guide to some good online resources for prayer and meditation:-
1. If you're ever in need to take ten minutes out to pray or meditate, prayerscapes have some good online resources - some if which are free, such as a free worship film on the Lord's Prayer, and a free mp3 on psalm 139 for christian meditation. (If you want to find out a little more about this scripture, here's a site that has some commentaries on psalm 139 and bible versions that you can read online).
2. Probably the best known of all the psalms is psalm 23 - often referred to as 'The Lord Is My Shepherd'. It is popular within both the Jewish and Christians traditions, and is a great scripture to read and dwell on God's protection and love, caring for us as a Shepherd would for his sheep.
3. Psalm 91 is another famous scripture that speaks of God's protection and care, likening the creator of the universe with a bird that covers it's offspring with feathers. A great psalm for prayer and reflection.
4. One of the great prayers in the Christian tradition is 'Make Me A Channel of Your Peace' - a prayer originally written by St Francis of Assisi, and popularised by a worship song of the same name. This song was recently recorded by 'Britain's Got Talent' sensation Susan Boyle.
