Direct Message: Prayer Apps for Lent

Are you looking for a new way to hear from God or pray to God during Lent this year? Your phone is a great tool to help you connect with God, especially when you set reminders to make sure you don’t forget! Here are some favorite apps that can give you some direction when hearing from God or praying to God:

  • Inner Room This app was created by the same people behind 24/7 Prayer Rooms and it includes a way to track prayer requests and then will randomly select requests and guide you in prayer and listening through audio prompts.
  • Ceaseless Each day you will be prompted to pray for 3 (or more) contacts on your phone. This is a great way to pray for a variety of people (and your favorite pizza shop).
  • 365 Gratitude Listing 3 things that we are grateful for on a daily basis has been scientifically proven to have a ton of positive effects on our brain and mood! This app gives daily prompts and space to record what we are thankful for.
