PrayerMate helps you be faithful in prayer for the people and causes you care about.

Every day, PrayerMate will select a person or topic that you've entered from each of your main categories (perhaps "My family" or "My small group at church") and show them to you as a series of index cards - then just swipe between them to pray. It brings together prayer points you've entered manually, regular updates from a whole host of Christian charities and churches, PDF prayer letters and daily prayer pointers from "Operation World".

Prayer is one of the greatest privileges for the person of faith, and yet most of us wish we were better at it. Now when you say to someone "I'll pray for you!" you can make sure you follow it up.

* Intuitive index card interface lets you swipe between the day's topics
* Set up your own personal categories and subjects to suit the way you pray
* Subjects can be entered manually or directly from your address book contacts - no typing necessary!
* Privately share prayer requests with others in a trusted small group
* Subscribe to online prayer diaries, with content from organisations such as London City Mission, Open Doors, UCCF The Christian Unions, Church Society and numerous local churches (including your own if you like!)
* Operation World "country of the day" feed
* Get the Church of England Collect for the Day automatically
* Gallery of downloadable prayers, plus "Take Words With You" scriptural prayer builder
* Attach photos and PDFs to prayer points
* Import/Export via Dropbox
* Optional daily alarm clock to remind you to pray
* Prayer points can be scheduled by date, day of the week/month, or just whenever they haven't been prayed for in a while
* PIN code feature for added privacy
* Email or message the people you're praying for from within the app, or email prayer points to a group of friends
* Built-in help system

A great help and reminder

As with prayer which is a important part of the Christian faith and commitment. How many times we say to people I pray for you then time goes by and you pray for other people, family and churches, missionary. Then we become blog down. With this app you can now store the people and others that you want to bring to God in prayer and it generate them so they come around in groups and prompts you to pray and of course this doesn’t stop you for praying for things that are on your mind right now then you can add then as well.

Great help in a time of crisis

Set this app up not long before the coronavirus crisis started. (March 2020) Now finding it an incredibly useful aid to prayer for family, church friends, my local town, those I know overseas etc. Keeping focussed, and praying for the future not just issues of each day, can be challenging in such a time. This app helps my brain be more focussed and systematic. I’m also recording in the app each day what I’m praying on each point, so that I can hopefully look back in time and thank God for his answers.

Really good - just 1 suggestion...

I’m part of a bible study group and we’ve all loved using this app to put in each other’s prayer requests - so thank you PrayerMate!

Just one suggestion, we can’t make a ‘group’ unless you’re a PrayerMate patron at the moment, and I’d really like this to be changed, because from what I’ve heard, the ‘groups’ is a really excellent setting. I’d love to make a personal group but at the moment this is not possible.

Thanks again PrayerMate!
