Prayer: Yes, There's an App for That Too

Prayer: Yes, There's an App for That Too New ID# 185151
A new smartphone app helps users deliver on all those "I'll be praying for you" comments that fly so freely in our Christian circles. PrayerMate pulls together "prayer points" from various sources that a user defines, then offers prompts and reminders to take them to God.

Possible Preaching Angle:

Will it solve the sourness some of us feel during that "sweet hour" of prayer? Probably not. But it will make it easier to remember. This should prompt us to ask though—why is it so hard for us to focus on the work of prayer that each of us are called to? Why is prayer so easy to neglect? Perhaps because deep down we don't fully understand or believe the beautiful mystery of prayer.
