Praying the Hours

I’ve downloaded into my iTunes the audio version of the Hours from the Eastern Orthodox site called Ancient Faith Radio…. At the appropriate time, iTunes Alarm begins playing the prayer, which I pray along with from the manual.

Recent changes in our family’s schedule have required me to develop a new “rule of life.” One of the things that I’ve begun and have found to be very enriching is praying the Hours. I’ve experimented with this over the years, but this new way has proven helpful.

I’ve downloaded into my iTunes the audio version of the Hours from the Eastern Orthodox site called Ancient Faith Radio. (They also have some great podcasts available on the site too.) And I also purchased the Manual of the Hours from which the prayers were taken.

I then set up each hour as a specific playlist in my iTunes. I downloaded a freeware called iTunes Alarm and set up a separate alarm for each Hour. At the appropriate time, iTunes Alarm begins playing the prayer, which I pray along with from the manual.

I also use another podcast prayer in the morning that I like. I especially enjoy using this prayer on my iPod when I’m walking or at a coffee shop.
