JesuitPrayer is your one-stop shop for Ignatian Spirituality on the go. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. In collaboration with the Magis Center for Catholic Spirituality and Loyola Press, JesuitPrayer offers daily scripture, Ignatian reflections, and prayer to anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.

Ratings and Reviews
The content is inspirational and palatable.
It’s simple, it touches you.
Yesterday I put in my first prayer request, and within a couple hours I honestly had the best day in a very long time… Not without challenges but those challenges were overcome before I could even address them. I know it sounds crazy and I know it all just happened too fast, but to me it all stems from starting my day with this prayer asking others to help pray for me and truly trusting that Jesus was with me. It was kind of amazing and brought so much joy to my heart
Points toward God
Uncomplicated interface, doesn’t try to do too much in the app, introduces Ignatian spirituality, avoids political polemic or ideology (except the pope’s often radicalized speech bytes), there are daily inspiration archives that go back at least as far as 2016, prayers are direct and simple without being simplistic, and the app when it shines points toward Jesus and God who deliver us all.
I would like to see two things: a modernization of Ignatian Exercises that yet preserves its stringency, and a resurrection of older prayers and litanies in the our vernacular (for example the Litany of Humility).
It's magnificent. The app has all the right simple elements to bring you back to it daily...twice! The reflections are superb and the daily examen are right on the spot, both when you feel at your worst in mid day and when you really need to focus back on God in your nightly prayers, besides Compline. I have suggested this app to a Youth and another Elder and both agree that the spiritual direction daily from this app is beautiful. I highly recommend it as part of your daily routine.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
