Any reader of this blog knows how greatly I value the Treasury of Daily Prayer - it is simply a wondrous gift to the Church, putting into a single volume so much wisdom and joy from the Church's prayer life and made so accessible that anyone can follow it with ease. Can it get any better? Um, yes. I picked up an iPad a couple months back and have all put abandoned my physical copy of Treasury, using instead the PrayNow app that CPH offers. It's Treasury without the bulk and without needing to flip pages at all. You can set up Matins and Vespers to autofill all the propers for each day and voila, the service is before you! You can even show the Psalms with their markings (or not, if you choose to speak them). I also have PrayNow on my phone, and it makes for a wonderful way to open a devotion at the start of a meeting or such, or for praying the Litany while you're waiting outside a hospital room or such. They recently added the short orders for Daily Prayer from Lutheran Service Book to the app as well. Wonderful stuff - thanks, CPH!
