Common Prayer helps today’s diverse church pray together across traditions and denominations with morning, midday, and evening prayers for every day of the year. With an ear to the particulars of how various liturgical traditions pray, this app offers a tapestry of prayer that celebrates the best of many traditions.
Liturgy comes to life as you tap on song titles in the Common Prayer app and sing along with the new monastic Rutba House community of Durham, North Carolina.
Following the 12 Marks of New Monasticism, this app also offers guidance for putting faith into action each month, complete with links to further reading that will deepen your understanding of how God is at work in the world.
Ultimately, Common Prayer makes liturgy dance, taking the best of the old and bringing new life to it with a fresh fingerprint for the contemporary renewal of the church. Churches and individuals who are familiar with with Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove will enjoy a video in which the two of them introduce this app and invite users to pray along with them, the communities, and New Monastics around the world.
Restored compatibility with recent versions of iOS.

Needs badge and sound options
I like the app for what is does - simple and straightforward. I would like more notification options. You can have banners and/or sounds, but not badges. I use badges and vibrations, never banners.
Also, I would like to choose my own alarm. The sound the app uses is my phone's sound for completing an upgrade. I mostly ignore it.
Splendid, but needs an update
Lovely book-to-app transition that makes morning prayers with neighbors even easier. I would love to give this four or five stars. Five if a couple options were implemented (like creating calendar events for morning prayers, or changing the bottom menu icon color from bright green)
Major Problem: this app has not been updated for the iPhone X. Than doesn’t just mean it’s not full screen... in addition to that, the bottom navigation bar renders halfway off the screen. With all future iPhones following the X’s display format, this will need to be updated soon.
Love this app
So happy to get this app back on my iPhone. It was off the App Store for a while and I couldn’t get on my iPhone after having to restore it.
I’m young and was able to grow up in going to modern megachurches most of my youth. As I’ve gotten a little older (mid 20s) I’ve started to fall in love of the tradition of mainline Christianity. Having the Common Book of Prayer always on me is wonderful.
This app is no frills. It does what it says it does and that’s it. No extra fussing around. I love it.
