Book of Hours

This Monday I found both volumes of Book of Hours: Prayers to the Goddess and to the God by Galen Gillotte. They are prayerbooks modeled after medieval books of hours used by monks with prayers for morning, evening, and night as well as phases of the moon, holidays and other occasions.
Despite the Wiccan style theology (Maiden/Mother/Crone) I thought the prayers were beautifully written so I couldn't resist. I started saying the prayers that night and have continued since. Sometimes I miss one or two, but for the most part I've been doing it pretty faithfully.

I don't if this could "count" for mental discipline. I find it's easier to remember to do than sitting meditation and it's easier to focus on- more concrete. Regardless of whether it works for the DP I enjoy doing it, and find it helps me keep incorporate spirituality into my day.
