Orthodox PrayerBook is the ultimate prayer assistant for Orthodox Christians. Not only does it allow you to carry your prayers around, it was designed from the ground up for the iPhone to allow you to pray in the least distracting manner possible.
Carry with you all the prayers, information about daily saints and fasting schedules. Keep a list of people you want to pray for and have them automatically embedded into the prayers.
Orthodox PrayerBook currently supports the Antiochian, Greek and OCA specific saints and daily variables.
The Orthodox PrayerBook has been developed tirelessly by the Spark OCN team that include: Johanna Phillips, Michael Otte, Kali Godshall, Kyra Godshall, Nicholas Kachur and Juan Gabriel Quinodoz.
This project also could not have come about without the support of the Orthodox Christian Network (www.myocn.net) and the Spark OCN executive team including Charles Lelon, Joanna Read, Nick Mavrick and Garry Paxinos.
A special thanks to all the beta testers, especially the ever-vigilant Mat. Irene Phillips.

Ratings and Reviews
This app worked amazingly when it was first released, it was nice to have an app where we could load prayer requests and pick from the jurisdiction that we attend. We’ve used it for a couple years and recently it started to hiccup again, it stopped sending alerts for prayer times, it wouldn’t let them be turned back on, and it deleted/lost already saved information, like email, passwords, etc., today it decided that it would no longer load the prayers at all, or be synced to Facebook any longer. The app is now deleted, and it’s unfortunate because our family has worked this into our normal everyday rhythm for evening prayers and other misc times. I’d be more than happy to give a five star rating if you would please update the app
What a joy to be able to use this wonderful app once again. The issues with previous updates which broke the app seem to be fixed now. The calendar is my favorite feature—scripture readings, lives of the saints, and daily troparia, all arranged according to one's selected tradition (OCA, Antiochian, or Greek) and all right in the app itself. A blessing!
A Handy App...but...
I like the utility of the app a lot. However, I can't give it 5 stars because there are no daily scripture readings. Also, the searching for friends feature only works if you specifically input names. I'd like to have it connect to my contacts and/or Facebook friends.
