Feedback is at the heart of what makes The Prayer App so special. Share a prayer request and you’ll be notified the instant someone prays for it. Knowing when people are praying is a powerful encourager.
When a prayer is answered you can update your request and encourage everyone who prayed, closing the loop, stirring up praise to God and creating a journal of your prayer life with a single tap.
Keep prayer flowing though your congregation, small groups or leadership team. Always have the prayer needs of your church right in your pocket and see them on the big screen at your prayer meetings.
Use circles to manage who gets informed of what prayer needs. Use the app to develop a more praying and praising church.
There are always unforeseen challenges in developing a complex mobile app of this nature. There are various technologies and services that must come together, testing and feedback cycles that inform the ongoing design and constant changes in software and tools employed.
We’ve used our experience and expertise to give a best estimate for the amount of time and money this part of the project will take, and we are fully committed to seeing the app successfully delivered. Our ministry partners can testify to our record for on-time and on-budget delivery of their projects and we have faith we can deliver.
We know there are other prayer apps out there. Actually, this project began as we tried to solve problems we encountered using these other apps and services. We’ve tried many of these apps and found each lacking ability to share, give feedback, or simply foster a good prayer habit. Much of that learning is in our vision and spec for this app, which we believe will be important and unique.
We certainly don’t see a single iPhone version as the end of the road. We envision doing for prayer what YouVersion has done for the Bible. There are many platforms and devices in which we want to see this prayer app reach. However, we will carefully evaluate and discern the best strategy and approach to building for each of these, to ensure best possible stewardship of resources and most appropriate deployment of technology.
We naturally see an Android app as the next phase of development, enabling us to reach a far greater number of people who pray. Our current road map looks to keep each version closely in step with each other. So, any additional funding raised over the given targets will go towards an Android version with the same feature set.
In addition to Android we see a web platform as essential to providing not only additional services but also helping us reach even further and allowing the app to embed functionality to church and ministry websites.
