One Percent Prayer

Take 1% of your day to get to know Jesus better.



What Now?

Welcome to One Percent Prayer! We are so happy you are taking the next step on your journey of growing closer to Jesus. 

Prayer can be hard. We're told to spend 15 minutes in prayer with Scripture every day. But when we're starting out it can be hard to know what to do during those 15 minutes. We're told we should listen for God to speak, but how do we do that? The audio guides below will walk you through fifteen minutes of prayer with Scripture. The prompts and silences will help you grow more comfortable listening for God to speak and speaking to Him from your heart. Praying with an audio guide a day for 30 days will help you grow in prayer and build the habit to pray every day. Jesus loves that you desire to get to know Him better and cannot wait to speak to you through His Word. 

Whether you are just starting out, returning after a dry spell, or a seasoned prayer veteran looking to grow deeper, these audio guides were recorded for you with love. They're available to you without cost (made possible through the Catholic Stewardship Appeal--thank you for giving generously). 

To access the audio guides, simply click on the link below and scroll down to start with Day #1. Note that each day you will need to scroll down to the next Day #. 
To find additional Day #'s, scroll down until you see the Audio Player. On the right edge of the audio player there is a gray bar next to the words “9 hours, 33 minutes.” Pull that bar down to access all the guides – there are 31 of them. Looking for more? We’ve also included bonus resources for each day below the audio player.  

You can start your journey at any time ~ but why not start today? 

Know that we are praying for you! 


What is the Commitment?

One Percent Prayer is simple. Each day, do just two things:

Spend one percent of your day devoted to personal prayer with scripture (that’s 15 minutes)

Live out your prayer by doing one concrete action to grow your love for God and neighbor
