Technology can help us with our prayers. Here are three ways.
Posted in , Oct 10, 2014
Prayer can be a lot of things. In some churches, candle flames represent prayers. An artist friend of mine often paints his prayers. A musician friend prays spontaneous prayers on the piano, sometimes with words and sometimes without.
You can also pray with an app. Applications (“apps”) for smartphones and tablets are a new technology that many people–myself included–are using to enhance their prayer lives. Here are three that I use:
The app was inspired by an article that has been published around the world and translated into such languages as Korean, Spanish, and Swahili.
That article was adapted into a prayer card that many people have kept in Bibles or purses and worn out in praying for children, grandchildren, students, nephews, nieces–even themselves.
So now we have the app! It also allows you to set a daily reminder to pray. It's $1.99 and available for iPhones or iPads.
Each of these apps allow you to share prayers with others via Twitter and Facebook, and are practically guaranteed to enhance and enlarge your prayer life.
