No matter when or where, Portals of Prayer inspires you to live each day as a disciple of Christ. Through each daily audio-and-textual devotion, you meditate on God’s Word and see it working through you in your life. New updates allow for a seamless and easy-to-use interface, keeping you focused on your devotional time.

What’s New?

Welcome to the NEW Portals of Prayer App. There have been many updates to help make your experience seamless, from the subscription feature to how the devotions are displayed. Here’s a list of all the new features:

Navigation Bar

Two features from the original navigation bar have now moved. The bottom still contains “Devotions” and “Favorites.” “Prayers” has now been renamed “Resources” to better represent its offerings. This tab will still be located on the bottom navigation bar. “Search” and “Settings” have been relocated to the top navigation bar.


An updated design allows for a sleek and modern devotions screen. Press the Play button in the middle of the image to hear your audio devotion. Swipe right or left to see previous or future devotions.


Not only can you search based on topic or month, but devotions are now also categorized based on year and quarter to make finding a devotion from the print version that much easier.


The “Prayers” tab is now called “Resources” and includes daily prayers, prayers for special occasions, and author biographies.


The app now offers a dark mode for your reading convenience.


The app now syncs your favorites across all your devices so long as you use the same Concordia Publishing House account.

About Portals of Prayer

- Daily audio and textual devotions
- Meaningful daily prayers

Voice is repellant.

In a world of podcasts, you think you can get people to listen with that live? Cmon, you can do better than that. I literally had to stop the voice and just read. Very disappointing.
Overall, I rate a 3, as the rest of the app is ok. Would like the option of setting up notifications for daily devotions. But all in all, I think the app is good and will continue using it.
I hope you can improve on the narrator, possibly give the option of audio speed. That would be great.
Thanks for putting this out there, with a little tweaking, it could be something id share outside my Lutheran family.

Wrong Voice

I was so excited to purchase this app until I heard the first devotion. The person reading the devotion is NOT the right voice for voiceover work. Hire Larry Conners, or at least a professional announcer. Sorry, but this poor man is boring and needs to step away from the mic. Thank you, God, that I still have the ability to read. 🙏🏻✝️😇🎄🙏🏻

I was introduced to this publication when it was a quarterly booklet avai9lable from Lutheran Churches. Sincve then I progressed to the quarterly onoine subscription, and now an annual subscription. I'm not a Lutheran but read the daily devotionals and morning & evening prayers. I've marked so many messages "Favourites" they could make a book in themselves. They keep me grounded in the Word, and are a great source of comfort in any situation. PTL!
