Since discovering Sacred Space (daily prayer online) from Tony Jones’ book The Sacred Way, I’ve found my personal worship helped by following online-directed prayer and worship pathways (but only after some intial skepticism).
That’s why I was particularly interested to learn more about a new online devotional website called Examen.me.
What I found is a personal worship tool that offers more function than Sacred Space- the ability to type devotional thoughts and prayers that can be stored and reviewed later.
“Examens” (prayer and meditation pathways you can choose) are offered for Scripture (Gospel, NT, OT, Psalm), Prayer (prayer of examen, center out prayer), and Journal.
Rockbridge Seminary students who completed the online seminary course “Practicing the Spiritual Disciplines” may find this spiritual disciplines tool to be useful.

I don’t think I’m alone … taking a fresh look at spiritual practices used over the centuries that could enhance my worship of God. For the first time in my life, I walked the Stations of the Cross on Good Friday and found it very moving.
Several days before, I was fascinated to read a discussion about liturgy among an Eastern Orthodox priest, an Anglican priest, a Southern Baptist pastor, a Roman Catholic, a United Methodist pastor, and a Lutheran pastor.
Rockbridge Seminary students who have completed the online seminary courses ”Church History I/II,” “Practicing the Spiritual Disciplines,” or “The Theology and Practice of Worship” might find the discussion quite interesting.
