Pray as you go is a daily prayer session, designed for use on portable devices, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc.
A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a 'Thought for the Day', a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer.
Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection.
Our aim is to help 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
It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives, with material written by a number of Jesuits, both in Britain and further afield, and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola. Although the content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format.

An Ignatian Powerhouse of Prayer
PAYG is such an incredible app. I got into it by accident-Sacred Space had a link on their website, and being curious I gave it a shot. PAYG is run by the Jesuits in Britain, and the app is designed to give you audio prayer in accordance with the Ignatian structure. Every opening has Catholic/Gregorian chant, a different reader, and deep Ignatian reflection on the readings or subject matter. Scripture readings are even recited twice throughout a daily readings segment, fulfilling the Jesuit practice of going deeper into the faith. Inside the app are a variety of audio segments: daily readings, the Stations of the Cross, the Rosary, the Examen, and even several 20 minute Ignatian Contemplation segments that use the Spiritual Exercises as a guide. I listen whenever I can, whether I'm on my way to work in the car, out and about if I have some time to spare, and of course, before bed with the Examen. If you're Catholic, partial to Ignatian spirituality, and always on the move, then this is the app for you. Sending out a huge thanks across the pond to the Jesuits in Britain for putting together such an incredible app. Download it now! #AMDG
Best Catholic Prayer App
Best Catholic Prayer App- hands down!! AUDIO Daily guided meditations. Starts with a church song or chant and goes into the reading of the daily liturgy, followed by a reflection, followed by the reading again and closing with a personalized reflection. ~10-12 minutes. Perfect prayer before bed.
Perfect music, pacing, timing. Simply beautiful. Also includes the only guided audio Jesuit examen I've found in apps.
I recommend it all friends and family, including those who only 'meditate' in the Buddhist tradition.
Great music/scripture app, hit or miss reflection questions
As an evangelical Christian I enjoy this app. It was recently redesigned and the update is amazing. I particularly like the inclusion of music at the beginning followed by scripture reading (often read twice which is excellent). I do wish it included more prayers to recite along with the reader, after all the app is called “Pray as you go”. I also find the reflection questions given after the scripture reading often odd or eco-centric. Why not include more questions calling to mind the bigger picture of what God is doing in the world? I’d prefer questions that have less to do with my subjective take or feelings on the Scripture.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
