The prayer as you go app is a daily prayer session that travels with you. The aim is to guide you to become aware of God's presence, listen and reflect on the Bible, and to spend time in prayer. Perfect for use on the train or in in the car. The app provides a new prayer session each work day, and one session for the weekend. It provides a framework for your own prayer, lasting between ten and thirteen minutes.
A great app designed for young people, but a gift to all ages! Choose to have devotions sent to your phone or to email and you'll enjoy a daily reflection that guides you to a Bible reading and allows time for reflection and prayer. d365 can last as long as you need it to, from 5 minutes to 50 - whatever you need to spend on it. The lasting benefit is a habit of pausing to quiet your mind and turn to God. Find d365 devotions at the app store of your choice.
