Praise the Lord for this resource!

Open Doors is a trustworthy ministry that my family and church has followed for years. We know Brother Andrew—he has spoken in our church and eaten in our home. He is a faithful servant of the Lord. Open Doors has always been faithful to provide updates on the persecuted church via newsletters and emails, but this app is fantastic to be aware daily of the current needs around the world to pray. I am making others aware of this resource—may many more pray-ers be raised up in this time. Thank you Open Doors and may prayers be answered, the persecuted church strengthened, and God be glorified!

Great idea, but app needs a few tweaks

I love the idea and keeping up on the prayer requests, but the app on my iPad only shows the scrolling text in about 2 lines in large font (and the heading stays in place in gigantic font), so it’s difficult to read. Also, the badge app icon does not work. So I don’t see a number by the app when a new request comes in. I have all alerts and banners set and a banner will flash and go away when a request comes in, but if I’m not there to see it, I don’t know there is anything new unless I check. Making the app more user friendly would really help, because I love the idea of instantly being made aware when there is a prayer need.

Caring app

I was so sad a while go when I saw in the news that 350 Indians died from a flood . My first thought was .are they believers .. many aren’t my heart was broken because they were unsaved and I just pray for those in the countries and places where the gospel is barely heard . So having people believe even when they are persecuted is amazing . Let’s pray for them ! I’m glad this app shows me ,wakes me up and encourages me to pray for others ! ❤️ let’s pray for the ones that are being beaten or going to jail for Believing ! Thank you for this app !
