Daily Prayer PC(USA) provides brief services for Daily Prayer based on the Presbyterian Book of Common Worship, including: psalms for the day, readings from the daily lectionary, and prayers of thanksgiving and intercession.
The app provides liturgies Morning, Midday, Evening, and Close of Day Prayer, selecting the appropriate service and lectionary readings based on the time and date settings of your iPhone or iPad. The calendar tool allows users to find psalms, readings, and prayers for other dates. Use the clock icon to select Morning, Midday, Evening, or Close of Day Prayer, overriding current time of day.
The “advanced features” menu allows users to toggle on/off various options and select between two versions of the Lord’s Prayer.
A brief tutorial provides information about the practice of Daily Prayer and instruction on using the app.
Also available is a Company of Pastors (In-App Purchase) that adds daily readings, including readings from the Book of Confessions. These readings use a proprietary eight-week psalm cycle, with all 150 psalms represented. This psalm cycle replaces the regular daily lectionary psalms, but the advanced settings menu allows users to toggle between the two options. Readings from the Book of Confessions follow a two year cycle.
What's New in Version 2.1
Fixed an issue with In-App Purchase
Recent "fix" did not resolve issues with in-app purchases. Readings, including those from the Company of Pastors, which I paid for and was charged for, do not show up at all. This app is in need of serious work for basic usability, and has been since it was released.
Great daily lection & prayers
Very much appreciate this. For what I use it for-- daily scripture readings (NRSV), meaningful prayers without wordy jargon-- this app is best around I've seen.
