In conversation with my Christian friends, I always try to recommend resources that I believe are helpful and encouraging, and my friends often return the favour and tell me about discoveries that have inspired them and nourished their faith. I was speaking with one such friend yesterday and she enthusiastically recommended an app called ‘Pray With Me’. It sounded interesting and so today I went to the App Store to check it out.
As I was downloading the Pray With Me app I felt a strong wave of God’s presence in my being and sensed the tremendous power of the prayers of those Christians who are members of the app’s community. I felt as though a subtle spirit of anger and fear melted away from my body and suddenly my chest felt light and I experienced a deep feeling of relief and peace. The Holy Spirit touched me and this was before I had even started using the app!
Within a feed (rather like the news feed on Facebook) members of the global community who use the app respond to prayer requests and let you know they are praying for you. I left a prayer request and I had people from Pakistan, Texas, The Philippines, Mexico, and elsewhere praying for me. What an amazing blessing and encouragement! One member left a comment with a prayer that was so powerful and beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes.
The app is great for sharing prayer requests and is also a great way to show love for others by letting them know you’re praying for them. You can follow people and get followed in a way not dissimilar to Twitter. You will need a smartphone in order to download the app which is available in the App Store for free with advertisements or ad-free for a small cost.

Please note: There are two apps with the same name in the App Store, one for Muslims and a different one for Christians so make sure you get the right one!
