Prayer is an amazing privilege, but it’s also really hard work (the apostle Paul compares it to a wrestling match!) PrayerMate is an award-winning Christian prayer app that seeks to help you actually pray for all the people and causes you care about.
PrayerMate brings all your prayer points together. Whether its your personal prayer points for friends and family, regular updates from some fantastic mission organisations, or the latest PDF prayer letter that just arrived in your inbox, PrayerMate puts it all together in one place and helps you get on and pray.
Lent is also a good time to re-establish good habits that may have slipped during the busyness of the so-called Festive Season, including a regular, daily time of prayer.
One suggestion is to use an app to help organise your prayers lists. PrayerMate is an excellent app for Android, iOS or Kindle. Launched in 2011, thousands of people now use it to shape or guide their prayers. It comes with a few suggestions, but it is straightforward to add your own list of names and prayer needs, as well as Bible verses, pdf documents (such as prayer letters) and photographs. You can link to prayer lists produced by various Christian societies you support, and there are suggested prayers for all kinds of situations.
