A God-centered, worship-based prayer app that stores and organizes Scripture passages and prayer requests by category and displays them in rotation according to the priority you assign to each one.

Prayer is difficult in so many ways! It can be hard to find the time, hard to know what to pray about, hard to keep focused, hard to keep from using the same words over and over and hard to keep it from becoming a "To Do" list for God. Prayer Prompter was designed to help you to be faithful in prayer while keeping the focus on God and His Word, rather than yourself.

Prayer Prompter is like a two drawer file cabinet.

• The top drawer is named "Meditation and Prayer." It stores and organizes Scripture passages by topic and displays as many of them as you want in rotation and according to the priority you assign to each one.

Prayer Prompter encourages Scripture-based prayer by providing an easy way to read and reflect on key passages of Scripture and return to them on a regular basis. Reading and thinking about (i.e. meditating upon) passages of Scripture increases knowledge, understanding and wisdom and may inspire a prayer from the heart to God. It might be as simple as an "Amen." (The model prayer that Jesus gave his disciples saying "Pray this way", is remarkably short!)

The first few folders in the top drawer are organized according to the popular “ACTS” method of prayer. The letters stand for Adoration meaning worship and praise, Confession which should include contrition for sin, Thanksgiving, the expression of gratitude to God, and Supplication, making known your requests. These four topics offer a balanced approach to communicating with God in prayer.

• The bottom drawer is named "Petition/Intercession." It stores and organizes prayer requests and answers to prayer by category, and displays as many of them as you want in rotation and according to the priority you assign to each one.

Some sources of inspiration that influenced the design of Prayer Prompter:

I will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.
I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word. (Psalm 119:15-16)

Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us,
But to Your name give glory,
Because of Your mercy,
Because of Your truth.
(Psalm 115:1)

"Praise and worship is the expression of admiration and devotion to God. Only praise puts God in His rightful position at the outset of our praying. In praising God, we declare His sovereignty and recognize His nature and power." Dick Eastman

"Godly prayer is fundamentally an act of worship. It is an expression of our praise, our unworthiness, our desire to see God's will fulfilled, and our utter dependence on Him for all our needs." John MacArthur

"Worship-based prayer seeks the face of God before the hand of God. God's face is the essence of who He is. God's hand is the blessing of what he does. God's face represents His person and presence. God's hand expresses His provision for needs in our lives. I have learned that if all we ever do is seek God's hand, we may miss His face: but if we seek His face, He will be glad to open His hand and satisfy the deepest desires of our hearts." Daniel Henderson

Prayer Prompter includes more than 600 Scripture passages from the New American Standard Bible (NASB) used by permission of The Lockman Foundation.

"Originally produced in 1971 and updated in 1995, the NASB is widely embraced and trusted as a literal English translation. The NASB provides superior accuracy with clarity and readability to inspire greater understanding. It has been produced with the conviction that the words of Scripture, as originally penned in the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, were inspired by God." The Lockman Foundation

Note: If you prefer a different version of the Bible, the NASB passages can be replaced by copying and pasting.

Get this! Awesome app!

This app helped me organize my prayers, keep them in one place (yes - including those “I’ll pray for you” types, and be accountable to my prayer practice.

When I am anxious about anything at all, I log it in the appropriate folder. Then I set aside a few minutes a day to go through the prayer list I have accumulated and bring my concerns to God. It makes me feel good and at peace just knowing I’m praying about these issues. Most are personal, some are prayers other people asked me to pray for, and some are social/political issues of the day that bother me.

I believe that when God touches my heart regarding an issue and gives me a burden for it, it’s my duty & privilege to take the battle on in prayer.

This app also tracks how often I pray, how long I pray, and how many hours total I used the app as a device/ guide to pray.

I only keep a log of my prayer points as a guide. And then I pray about them as the Spirit leads.

I log the answered prayers, too, so that I can see God’s responses.

What are you waiting for? Get it!

Part of my daily power habits

I recommend this app to everyone I meet who expresses their desire to pray. I cannot believe the capabilities within this! It is incredible what it can do. To pray through the Scriptures daily on pertinent topics and to be able to accommodate it to my own particular needs is so powerful. The app keeps me on point, reminds my failing memory, lets me know how long it has been since I have prayed for each and every request. This is a must have app for sure!!

Now I have two

After developing (& backing up via Dropbox) on my phone many personal folders containing verses by topic to the upper section, I’ve had a longing to receive the updated folders Prayer Prompt has continued to develop.
Opening a second Prayer Prompt on an iPad allows me to utilize updates containing new verses recently added by Prayer Prompt. I merge both onto my personalized phone app over time.

Thank you again for the precious living gift you have shared through Prayer Prompt.
