A simple discipline of Christians throughout the centuries has been the reading of the psalms at different times of the day. At various times of the past year I have practiced what is called Lauds, Vespers and Compline, or morning prayer, evening prayer and night prayer. I’ve been aided in this practice by the website Universalis which provides a simple liturgy and different psalms for each hour of each day. Because I prefer to not carry my laptop with me into the sanctuary where I do my prayers, I used to carry my pocket pc until it went down on me a month ago. What to do, what to do. Lo and behold, Universalis makes a WAP version for use on cell phones with internet. This only includes the readings and not the liturgy. So I sat down at the computer and wrote a single page with all the liturgy for each service. Now wherever I go, as long as I have my sheet, my Bible and my cell phone, I can practice the reading of the psalms following a calendar of readings. Viva technology!
