Weekly Guide for Daily Prayer from Creighton Online Ministries | Each week we offer a Guide to help with daily prayer, in the midst of our busy lives. These are not specific meditations, and they don't replace the Daily Reflections. This is an aid to help each of us listen to the movements of the scriptures for a whole week and to name some desires within us that we can bring to the Lord. This will help let those desires interact with the concrete events of our day.
