A God-centered, worship-based prayer app that stores and organizes Scripture passages and prayer requests by category and displays them in rotation according to the priority you assign to each one.
Prayer is difficult in so many ways! It can be hard to find the time, hard to know what to pray about, hard to keep focused, hard to keep from using the same words over and over and hard to keep it from becoming a "To Do" list for God. Prayer Prompter was designed to help you to be faithful in prayer while keeping the focus on God and His Word, rather than yourself.
Prayer Prompter is like a two drawer file cabinet.
• The top drawer is named "Meditation and Prayer." It stores and organizes Scripture passages by topic and displays as many of them as you want in rotation and according to the priority you assign to each one.
Prayer Prompter encourages Scripture-based prayer by providing an easy way to read and reflect on key passages of Scripture and return to them on a regular basis. Reading and thinking about (i.e. meditating upon) passages of Scripture increases knowledge, understanding and wisdom and may inspire a prayer from the heart to God. It might be as simple as an "Amen." (The model prayer that Jesus gave his disciples saying "Pray this way", is remarkably short!)
The first few folders in the top drawer are organized according to the popular “ACTS” method of prayer. The letters stand for Adoration meaning worship and praise, Confession which should include contrition for sin, Thanksgiving, the expression of gratitude to God, and Supplication, making known your requests. These four topics offer a balanced approach to communicating with God in prayer.
• The bottom drawer is named "Petition/Intercession." It stores and organizes prayer requests and answers to prayer by category, and displays as many of them as you want in rotation and according to the priority you assign to each one.
Some sources of inspiration that influenced the design of Prayer Prompter:
I will meditate on Your precepts,
And contemplate Your ways.
I will delight myself in Your statutes;
I will not forget Your word. (Psalm 119:15-16)
Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us,
But to Your name give glory,
Because of Your mercy,
Because of Your truth.
"Praise and worship is the expression of admiration and devotion to God. Only praise puts God in His rightful position at the outset of our praying. In praising God, we declare His sovereignty and recognize His nature and power." Dick Eastman
"Godly prayer is fundamentally an act of worship. It is an expression of our praise, our unworthiness, our desire to see God's will fulfilled, and our utter dependence on Him for all our needs." John MacArthur
"Worship-based prayer seeks the face of God before the hand of God. God's face is the essence of who He is. God's hand is the blessing of what he does. God's face represents His person and presence. God's hand expresses His provision for needs in our lives. I have learned that if all we ever do is seek God's hand, we may miss His face: but if we seek His face, He will be glad to open His hand and satisfy the deepest desires of our hearts." Daniel Henderson
Prayer Prompter includes more than 600 Scripture passages from the New American Standard Bible (NASB) used by permission of The Lockman Foundation.
"Originally produced in 1971 and updated in 1995, the NASB is widely embraced and trusted as a literal English translation. The NASB provides superior accuracy with clarity and readability to inspire greater understanding. It has been produced with the conviction that the words of Scripture, as originally penned in the Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, were inspired by God." The Lockman Foundation
Note: If you prefer a different version of the Bible, the NASB passages can be replaced by copying and pasting. http://prayerprompter.com/replacing-bible-passages.
1) Prayer Prompter’s Dropbox Backup and Restore feature has been updated to use the new Dropbox API version 2. As a result, you will probably need to login to your Dropbox account the first time you use Backup and Restore. Dropbox says “The Dropbox API v2 helps your app better integrate with Dropbox. We will be turning off API v1 on 6/28/2017.”
2) Prayer Prompter is dropping support for iOS 8. While we would like to maintain backward compatibility for earlier versions such as iOS 8, the work involved in doing so is more that we are currently able to handle. This means if you have an Apple device that is not running at least iOS 9 or iOS 10, you will not be able to update it to this latest version of Prayer Prompter and the Dropbox Backup and Restore feature will stop working on that device after 6/28/2017.
If you decide to get a newer device after June 28, 2017 that is capable of running iOS 9 or later and do not have a current Dropbox backup of your Prayer Prompter content, you can still restore everything from your old device by using iTunes "Manual Backup and Restore" feature. (In other words, you must backup your old device manually in iTunes so that you can restore it manually to your new device.) Then update Prayer Prompter to the latest App Store version to get Dropbox Backup and Restore capability. If you have any doubts about doing this yourself, take your old and new device to the Apple Store and they will do this for free.
Written reviews and the star rating help potential new users decide whether to get an app or not, so if you like Prayer Prompter and want to help others find it, the best way to do that is to write a review describing why you like Prayer Prompter and select a number of stars from 1 to 5. If you have written a review in the past, please update it or just repost it for this new version. Thanks!
Ratings and Reviews
I’m not very happy with this app because I can’t change the Bible version that I enjoy. According to the HELP section, I must highlight the verse in preferred version in YouVersion first, then switch to Prayer Prompter and change the version. I’ll have to do this for every single verse I want to study.
In addition, I tried contacting Prayer Prompter directly within their app and after writing about my Bible version frustrations, I was instructed to fill in the Captcha thing. I tried 11 different times and each time it failed to recognize the letters & numerals I typed! WOW, that’s just not right. I absolutely love YouVersion and will continue with them. I’m going to add Scripture Typer as well.
Developer Response ,
We are sorry about the problem you had with our contact form. It has been replaced with a different one that should allow you to contact us without any difficulty.
We have been to planning to offer a variety of Bible versions in addition to the NASB; KJV, NKJV, ESV NIV, CSB and NLT. Contracts have been in place with the publishers for the last several years but a shortage of time and money has prevented us from implementing this feature thus far.
In spite of the many five star reviews our app has received from satisfied users, it appears that your two star review is negatively impacting the number of new people who download Prayer Prompter each day. We hope you will consider this and perhaps revise your rating and review.
Now I have two
After developing (& backing up via Dropbox) on my phone many personal folders containing verses by topic to the upper section, I’ve had a longing to receive the updated folders Prayer Prompt has continued to develop.
Opening a second Prayer Prompt on an iPad allows me to utilize updates containing new verses recently added by Prayer Prompt. I merge both onto my personalized phone app over time.
Thank you again for the precious living gift you have shared through Prayer Prompt.
This app is indispensable
Thank you to whomever created and maintains this app. I use it daily in my prayers and it allows me to pray through scripture constantly, which takes my prayers deeper and brings me closer to the Throne of Grace then I ever thought possible. The dedication the developer put in to this app to find and categorize so many verses and quotes into various topics and sections amazes me. Thank you so much again for this app. I pray that you will never quit keeping it updated and working with IOS.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
