TRY SOMETHING ANCIENT
Lectio 365 Morning Prayers are inspired by the ancient practice of ‘Lectio Divina’ (or ‘Divine Reading’); a way of meditating on the Bible that’s been used by Christians for centuries.

Night Prayers adapt the ancient practice of ‘The Examen’ with reflective questions, Bible readings and prayers to help process the day and prepare to sleep.

SHAPE YOUR LIFE
Learn about the six Christian practices at the heart of the 24-7 Prayer movement and be inspired to build rhythms of:
* Prayer
* Mission
* Justice
* Creativity
* Hospitality
* Learning

JOIN THE 24-7 PRAYER MOVEMENT
24-7 Prayer started in 1999, when one simple student-led prayer vigil went viral, and groups all over the world joined in to pray non-stop. Now, nearly a quarter of a century later, thousands of communities have taken part in 24-7 Prayer (in-person and virtually) in their churches, communities and cities. 24-7 Prayer has helped individuals all over the world to encounter God in prayer rooms; now we want to help people develop a daily relationship with Jesus.

Thank you

I seriously want to give a very big thank you to the creators of this app. I’m a fifteen year old guy and for a while now I’ve been praying about something on my heart quite a bit. It’s that I felt that I was on the cusp of a closer more meaningful relationship with God and I really wanted that so badly. I just wanted to feel that closeness and peace that I’ve heard about others having. And at times I felt discouraged because it just seemed as if I couldn’t quite bridge the gap. But then tonight, I listened to the nighttime prayer on this app with my parents as they listen to it regularly. As I was following along with it, I just felt this overwhelming peace from God and I knew he was there with me and I could feel his love so clearly. And the voices and the music and just being with God was so amazing. I really think it helped me finally bridge the gap and it is awesome. I now have downloaded the app and will for sure be a regular user. Thanks so much.

Universal Sermonettes detract from scripture and prayer

I really love the scripture and the pauses for silence, reflection and prayer.
What I don’t like is that every user receives the same thing as each other every day, and the sermonettes thrown in. Having tens of thousands of people listening to the same sermons takes away from the user having a personalized opportunity in engage with God’s word and the Spirit and could be abused by the developer to manipulate hearts - for example on election days. The mini-sermons have been emphasizing certain aspects of the passage of scripture while ignoring others. I’ve found myself praying for the other users to not be bent by the sermons away from the heart of the scripture.
If this were a tool where one could listen and reflect on scripture with the pauses for silence and prayer, but without the sermons and agenda, then it would be much better. Even better would be if it gives the user an opportunity to choose an area or topic with scripture that relates to that topic for a season for personal healing and growth. This is better produced than other apps, but I pray the developer uses it only for the spiritual benefit of the Body and not as a tool to push organizational agendas while distracting from full engagement with God’s Word as it is written.

Thanks for the feedback.

Readable fonts, finally. Awaiting desktop

I’m celebrating as this amazing devo app has been updated to version 2.0 and finally honors the iOS system-wide font size setting. It is now possible to read the terrific content on an iPhone (with normal reading glasses if you need them)! Since its inception, Lectio 365 has been a staple in my devotional life, but until now, I’ve only listened to the beautiful audio or used the app on iPad in order to get it large enough to read. Now I can read along and not just listen.
Thank you for updating the app to solve this pain point.
Now, if only it would show up in the Mac App Store like Lectio for Families does. (It is quite frustrating that some apps refuse to appear there. And retrieving the IPA file from the phone, then double-clicking to install onto an Apple Silicon Mac doesn’t work for Lectio 365 either.)
