Bridgetown Audio Podcast

David Stark: "This podcast combines scriptural truth, pastoral sensitivity, and great insights about heart issues that this time is bringing up. Both teachings and daily devotions are on the same podcast. Both are good; I especially recommend the devotions."

The Pause App

Kitty Cramer says, “Something I have found to be very helpful and that I have been recommending to just about everyone I have been talking to is a free app that was developed by John Eldredge. It is called the “pause” app. It is in essence a spiritually directed pause which helps you connect to God in what I find to be a very powerful way. It is organized into a 1,3,5 and 10 minute directed pauses. You have to start with the one minute and are not allowed access to the longer pauses until you use each one for a certain time period. This keeps over achievers from over extending and burning themselves out. The app combines breathing, music and scripture and invites the listener to pause from the world and enter into God’s presence. It is very effective and easy to access. 

“I have gotten a lot of good feedback from people who are starting to use it on a daily basis. I find it to be a really good way to begin my quiet time each day and then as a great way to end each day. 

“I would love you to try it and see what you think. John talks a lot during the one minute because it is only a minute. Try it long enough to gain access to the three minute and I think you will see its value. I even like the one minute because I love the end where he says, “That’s good. That’s enough for now.” None of us hear those words enough!”

"My Utmost for His Highest" Subscription Email

Bill McKay: “God used My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers more than any other daily devotional to shape me into the disciple he wants me to be. It’s thought-provoking and often challenging as Chambers calls us in a variety of ways to ‘surrender the right to yourself’ to Jesus. If you aren’t familiar with it, check it out. If you are, here’s a way to return to this classic.”

Centering Prayer App

Download free for iOS

Bill McKay: "Centering prayer is a way to enter into silence and solitude with Jesus. This app helps create a space for centering prayer with guidelines, scripture, music, and a timer so you don't have to think about the clock. I've used this app off and on for years and found it very helpful."


Reimagining the Examen

Download free for iOS

Download free for Android


Bill McKay: "The Examen is a time of prayer in which you look back over the past day or so and ask God to show you when you felt close to Jesus and when you felt not so close. Then the Examen helps you ask Jesus about those times, see him with you in them, and learn what he has to teach you.

"This app is helpful because it guides you through Examen prayer for a bunch of different life circumstances such as 'Identifying inner Wounds,' 'Gratitude,' 'An Impending Decision,' and 'My Past, Present, and Future.'"
