I always love to pass on things that have been transformational for me, and this is one of them!
I have never been a “prayer list” person, as it just feels a bit like a straight jacket, but this prayer app has been such a GIFT….
A friend of mine told me about this app, and at first I was a bit skeptical…well, maybe ALOT skeptical. I am not a techie type person, especially when it comes to spiritual activities. So, it took me awhile to actually try it out. However, when I finally did, I was immediately intrigued.
The initial setup was the hardest part, but as I got into it I loved the options. I could create categories and tell the app how many items I wanted to pray for each time as well as how many items I wanted per prayer time in each category (I chose 15 per time with anything form 1 to 4 items per category, but you can set it up for any number that suits you).
Just to give you an example, my categories are:
Biblical prayers, My walk with God, My family, My friends, my Church, Unbelievers, World Mission and My Work
Under each category individual requests can be entered. The World Mission section allows me to import the prayer requests from certain missions’ organizations if I want to. The App also allows me to import or pick from scriptural prayers that I would like to pray for specific things.
I can take notes on each individual prayer item, which I often do–dates with specific things the Lord gave while praying. It has been such a blessing to go back and read some of those. I can also “archive” requests that have been answered and that I am no longer praying for. That allows me to review answers to prayer from time to time.
Though I don’t pray with this method every day, I do so often and I love thinking and praying for people and things that I care about in such an intentional way.
This has been SUCH a blessing to me, and I hope it will be the same for some of you as well!!
