Life changing

I have been listening to Morning Prayer for the past 3 years and it truly has been life changing, this morning prayer podcast has strengthened my faith and has changed my morning routines as I make time every morning to worship which has been the best thing I could have done. Thank you Ben for what you do 🙏🏻 sending you many blessings

Deep Prayer Podcast

I spent a long time looking for a podcast to lead me through a time of prayer based on traditional prayers and writings. This podcast hits the center of bulls eye of what I was looking for with its reliance on the Book of Common Prayer and Apostles’ Creed. Ben does and excellent job augmenting that content with his singing and guided times of prayer for more personal items as well. I have an hour drive to the office, and it is a huge blessing to participate with this podcast about once per week.
