For Christians, meditation is part of the spiritual practice of prayer. Prayer is key to personal transformation and connection with God, but speaking to God is not the only way to pray. Meditation is another way of praying by listening to and reflecting on scripture, to increase our knowledge of Christ. God is everywhere and is speaking to us in many ways: through nature, through other people, through the activity of the Holy Spirit, directly and, of course, through the scriptures.

Christian meditation also benefits our physical and mental health. Meditation is a form of mindfulness—focusing on one thing without distraction, which has been shown to have lots of health benefits. Studies have shown that even 10-15 minutes of mindfulness can improve our brain function. It enhances our mental health and reduces stress. For religious people, studies have found that meditation that integrates religious practice is even more effective than general mindfulness practice.

Center your mind with silence and scripture, helping you reduce stress, find peace with God, and strengthen your spiritual connection with the Lord and the bible.

Peaceful, accesible, centering

Behold prayer has created a space where I can rest, find peace, and just listen to ancient, beautiful, and wise words. I love starting the day with meditative invitations to breathe and rest. The format of each recording is very calming and creates space to open my heart to listen and then receive whatever wisdom, images, or insight the words might provide. For anyone who wants to create space for scripture and prayer but isn’t sure how to start or is just looking for something new, this is a truly refreshing way to enjoy the word! I also love doing yoga while listening. Really wonderful, accesible format and great app!

Sustainable spiritual practice & personal transformation

Behold Prayer and the practice of meditation on scripture has had a profound impact on my sense of peace in a year or change, transition, and uncertainty. I love the way this app and the guided meditation helps me experience a heightened sense of Gods presence and voice. The beautiful audio recordings and reflection prompts help me process, and the experience of listening in silence has truly been a gift in the midst of a lot of noise from external consumeristic culture, and my own internal criticism. Thank you to the Behold Prayer team for making mediation in scripture so accessible and contemporary!

Short invitations to listen to God

Behold is a unique app that emphasizes listening to God’s word and building in silence to develop meditation on the Scripture that was read. Each meditation is about 10 minutes long, which makes it a manageable amount of time to do one over a lunch break or in the evening. The repetition of the Scripture has helped me notice different words and phrases in a specific passage that I may not have otherwise. Ultimately, this app is a huge help in my desire to grow in my listening to God, and building in God’s word to my daily experience.

Thank you! We really wanted the brevity of the meditations to make them more accessible to people, so we're so glad to hear that it's working for you.
