Description

Echo exists to help you pray.

We believe that prayer is a powerful and effective way for us to connect with God. If you're anything like us, the biggest obstacles that keep you from praying are difficulty organizing or keeping a list of your prayers, and then actually remembering to pray for those things when life gets busy. Echo was created to solve these problems, and to give you space to engage with your Creator.

We want to help you pray without ceasing.

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

KEEP TRACK OF ALL YOUR PRAYERS

Echo lets you keep a list of every single one of your prayers. You can add as many prayers as you want, categorize them, delete old prayers, and even mark prayers as answered so you can see how God is working (and remember to thank Him!).


SHARE PRAYER REQUESTS WITH OTHERS

You have the ability to share prayer requests with other individuals or groups. Share prayers with friends and family privately, or create a group to communicate together. Sharing works great for small groups or focused communities committing to pray for each other throughout the week.


REMIND YOURSELF TO PRAY

You can easily set up push notifications or emails to remind you to pray for your prayers, prayers that others have shared with you, or prayers from your groups. Reminders help you engage with God throughout the week, even when you find yourself busy with life.


PRAY WITHOUT DISTRACTION

Echo gives you the ability to "Pray Now" which gives you a clear, focused way to pray. Choose what you would like to pray for and optionally set a timer for how long you want to pray.


NOTIFY PEOPLE WHEN YOU’VE PRAYED FOR THEM

After praying for someone, send out a notification to let them know you’ve prayed for their shared prayer. You get the option of sending out a message of encouragement after praying for them in the “Pray Now” portion of the app.


FOLLOW & PRAY FOR YOUR MINISTRY

With Echo Feeds, you can follow any ministry and pray for them! If you are a church or ministry, replace your old-school prayer chain or email list with a platform that is beautiful, organized, powerful and instant. Send real-time updates to your network, and connect your community in prayer.

Echo Plus+ Membership

We offer many features for free, but to access all the features in Echo, you will need a paid subscription. It's an in-app purchase that renews monthly or yearly (your choice), and starts with a 14-day free trial.

Learn more about Echo Plus+ here: https://new.echoprayer.com/echo-plus

Payment will be charged to your Apple ID account at the confirmation of purchase. The subscription automatically renews unless it is canceled at least 24 hours before the end of the current period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. You can manage and cancel your subscriptions by going to your App Store account settings after purchase. Any unused portion of a free trial period for a publication will be forfeited when you purchase a subscription to that publication (this isn't applicable to Echo, but we have to include it in the fine print anyway).

Prayer connects us.

There is something beautiful and exciting that happens when we see God answer prayers.
As we see prayers answered, our faith gets stronger, which in turn causes us to pray even more and feel even more empowered to share what God is doing.

What’s New

Version 3.2.2

A couple quick bug fixes. The big news is Echo Plus+ and the ability to add photos to prayers! We're switching to an in-app subscription membership that gives you access to all the features in Echo. This new Echo Plus+ Membership lets you create Groups and Feeds, share prayer requests, and add photos to prayers. As part of this change, we're removing all other pricing for Feeds, and we're raising the limit for Groups to 50 members.

Great concept, very glitchy

We’ve been using the app for our small group for about a month now and we all love that we can easily message and pray for each other without having a group text. However the app has been super glitchy. I just had to delete and re-download and found out the prayer request I added yesterday never even added. It’s also been notifying everyone in the group when one particular prayer has been prayed for and we can’t figure out why.

It was a little difficult to figure out how to navigate initially, the opening tutorials on use are not very thorough and we accidentally kept “answering” prayer requests instead of just praying for people. The fact that there are a lot of hidden buttons that don’t show up unless you tap the screen gets confusing because there were several times I got into a prayer request and couldn’t figure out how to get out. After using it for a month, the usability is better, although we’re still trying to figure it all out. It would also be nice if in the group prayer board it would list who posted the prayer on the title. Right now we have several that just say “mom” and you have to click on each one to see who posted it. We can have people re-label them, but it would be just as easy to have the poster listed on the list as well.

3 stars due to glitching and difficulty figuring out how to use it.

Developer Response ,

Wow, I'm really sorry to hear that Echo has been glitchy for you! We actually work really hard to make it as bug-free as humanly possible! Would you mind emailing us at support@echoprayer.com with any specific details on what else has been happening for you, so we can try to track it down?

As for the other suggestions, we're always working to improve Echo, so hopefully some of our future updates will help with things that you mentioned. We've definitely tried to make it really easy to use, but I think you're right that the in-app walkthroughs are pretty bare. If anyone in your group would like more in depth help, check out some of the articles we've written at https://support.echoprayer.com

Plz Add more features!

I really adore this app! I just wish you could add categories for different prayers. Like top priority prayers / family & friends etc. I know there are hashtags but that seems to do nothing. Also I wish you could search for a certain prayer cuz I pray for many people and have over 30 prayers I have to search through to find a certain person.

Just being able to group certain prayers would be really nice. A search feature would help! No limits on certain features and prayer templates or examples just to encourage others to type in more detailed prayers. Prayers that you can repeat for the same individuals that is easily applied would also be nice.

Thanks for this app. I know it’s saving a lot of people and growing their faith! 🙌🏻

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback - yeah, we agree... having a way to categorize prayers better is definitely on the future list of updates. We did build a search feature in already, though! Just pull down on the prayer list screen and it reveals a search bar (like in the mail app, etc). We're hoping to have guided prayer content, helpful examples, etc someday, too.

Wonderful and helpful app

This is a truly valuable app. The interface looks great and is intuitive. It has become a daily part of my routine, and I am grateful to the developers for such thoughtful design.
I noted in my initial review that the "random" prayer reminders seem a little un-random. The same small subset of prayer items keep coming up, while many haven't come up at all.
Having said that, I fully agree with what the developer said in the response to this review. There have been so many times when a random prayer need has come up in the app...and it has seemed to be so perfect in that moment. This app is such a blessing, and I have recommended it to many of my friends and family.

Developer Response ,

Hey David - yes... We've seen this, too... It's actually a bit difficult to tell if it's the randomness that's off, or if it's just our perception of what random is supposed to feel like. I remember back when Apple first introduced the shuffle feature on the iPod (yeah, I'm too old) and after lots of complaints, Steve Jobs made it less random to make it feel more random!

But anyway, yes, it's on the development todo list to improve the randomness.

As a side note, ever since the beginning of Echo back in 2006, I've put a comment in the code that is my own prayer for God to allow the computer to pull the right prayers at the right times for people. It has definitely seemed like that prayer has been constantly answered, because I've heard many stories from people who have said that Echo reminded them to pray for someone just before or after a significant need came up. I still love thinking that God works everything out - even 1's and 0's - for the good of those who love him.
