Deliberate People(tm) Daily Prayer Guide

The Daily Audio Bible has reached 2.5 million downloads on iTunes.

They also sell a helpful Bible Reading, Prayer Guide and Journal "in one" called the Deliberate People(tm) Daily Devotion Journal.

This prayer guide is excertpted from their free downloadable Bible Reading Guide to let you see what's in it.

The Bible Reading portions are simpliar to those found in "One Year Bibles" with daily readings from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs. This is a good plan though what I plan to use in 2007 Lord willing is the M'Cheyne Bible Reading Plan except I'll drop M'Cheyne's Psalm readings (giving me only 3 chapters to read some days) because I aim to read the pslams morning and evening anyway. You can find it online here or as an RSS feed in your favorite translation (hopefully) here.
