Embrace God in your confinement with ‘Pray as You Stay’ app retreat

During these trying times of uncertainty, take a few minutes a day to plug into Heaven with a new daily prayer support series on our favorite retreat app Pray as You Go (Free) Apple | Android 

Are you feeling a little out of touch with the Lord and finding it difficult to pray in the midst of the crazy set of circumstances that turned your life upside down? The folks from Jesuit Media Initiatives out of Britain have added the “Pray as You Stay” daily prayer series to their lineup to help you through your days of self-isolation, fear, anxiety and uncertainty. This new audio prayer series is designed to draw you away from all that and bring you closer to God. The goal is to uplift you and even bring peace and consolation. Enjoy soothing reflections and lovely music that gently lead you into the day’s reflection theme supported by Scripture and ideas for creative prayer.

As with all of Pray As You Go series and retreats, you’ll spend a few minutes per day in a systematic method of prayer which you follow in an audio format. A new prayer session is produced for each day of the week, written by a number of Jesuits and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola, according to developers. Although the content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format of gently weaving together music, a passage of scripture and a few questions for personal reflection in a each prayer session. Developers say the framework of prayer allows you to:
* become more aware of God’s presence in your life
*listen to and reflect on God’s word
*grow in your relationship with God

You’ll love the fact that the pace is slooooow with deliberate lengthy pauses in the narration to get you to calm your racing thoughts and focus. To get the most out of the experience, try to listen using headphones, earbuds or quality external speakers. At times the combination of music and soothing narration mixed with Scripture or reflections can be downright breathtaking.

To access the Pray as You Stay series within the app, simply download Pray as You Go app and open it to the home screen. Choose the hamburger menu and select “Retreats and Series”. Tap the “Stay and Pray” heading and from there, choose the first week. This is a totally free app with no add-on charges for additional resources.

Turn off the world, grab your headphones and enjoy your special time with God.
