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

Love this great app!

This app has been so helpful for praying intentionally and consistently. I love the biblical prayers and how easy it is to start praying! It’s great that it rotates between my prayer lists and subjects; that keeps my prayers from becoming too rote and predictable. I also love that you can add a picture of the person you are praying for. It really helps me to have true empathy when I’m praying rather than just saying words. The prayer plans are so well written and helpful and there are so many to choose from!
It would be awesome if it linked easily to scripture, or even a topical bible when adding a prayer card ... maybe even youversion?
I wouldn’t mind more addictive things like a happy sound and some confetti thrown across the screen when I finish praying or some notification badges. Technology is vying for everyone’s attention.
It would also be awesome to be able to check some prayers as “answered” instead of just archived... that feels like I’m throwing away something valuable. 😳 I’d love to be able to see all my answered prayers somewhere in the app!

Fantastic app and so so helpful! Thank you for making it! Cannot believe it’s free! What a blessing!

Clearing my mind

This year I am after all these years of being saved, in a position where I must pray for my church, for my family and myself. I’m thrust into leadership, and I have felt so in adequate up that point. But I have found so much more joy in prayer this year than in all the years of my salvation. I am grateful to PrayerMate because it helps me focus. Early in the morning or late at night, my mind is very busy with all types of thoughts. Using PrayerMate helps me to block out all those things. Prayer is not a task for me anymore. Prayer is necessary, my joy, my power, my battle. I’m hurting the devil, and I intend to do as much damage as possible until the end.

It takes getting used to, but then you’ll love it

At first I was turned off by the user interface-everything is in card style and it’s yellow background is not for me. One of its strengths is being able to list all the people that you want to pray for and you can categorize where they fit - family, friends, coworkers, and missions etc. When you open the app it randomly rotates through those groups and the lists within them so you’re not praying for the same thing or the same person every single day, which to me I found very refreshing. It’s really helped my prayer life!
