Spiritual Encounter


There are some wonderful websites that offer daily devotions.  Here are some of our favorites:


The Daily Prayer app is created by the PCUSA Office of Theology and Worship and is available for both Apple and Android. It provides simple, yet rich devotional resources for morning, midday, evening, and close of day. Each service includes psalms and readings from the confessions. Other elements include opening and closing words, biblical canticles, a thanksgiving for light and a prayer of confession. An advanced features menu allows users to customize which elements appear.




This online devotional seeks to provide reflections on themes that impact our faith journey. d365's mission is to create a quiet space for meditation and prayer.

Available for free with iTunes, this is a PCUSA weekly podcast of daily lectionary readings. You may subscribe to "Hear the Word" with iTunes which you can download for free if you don't have it. Each podcast includes four lectionary readings for one of the Sundays or festivals of the church year: an Old Testament reading, a Psalm, an Epistle and a Gospel reading along with a prayer.  http://www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/devotions/hear-word/

From the PCUSA Mission and Ministry, a listing of additional spiritual practices and devotional resources available on-line or as pdf downloads. These resources include: The Jesus Prayer, Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, and 20-minute Sabbaths (Examen, Breath Prayer, and Walking the Labyrinth).
