“There’s an app for that.”
Ever considered how technology can enhance prayer life?”
Really! Search “Prayer” and see what pops up that might strengthen your personal prayer life. Here are a few ideas to get you started using tech tools:
Find a website devotional: KBC recommends www.d365.org, an on-line devotional produced by Passport, Inc.
Use E-mail: Sign up for an email reminder from an online source. Pray through your e-mail address book. Send a note telling your friend they were prayed for.
Data base prayers: Pray through your “friends” list on Facebook. Pray through your address book on your mobile phone.
Social Networking: Post a prayer for the day. Share a request. Write on a friend’s wall when they share concerns or a celebration.
Computer/Phone/PDA: Set your wallpaper or screen saver to show a prayer or scripture.
Put “pray” on your daily “to do” list.
Alarm: My favorite tool for this year is the alarm feature on my phone. After learning about the Benedictine Hours, I set “silent” alarms throughout the day. By putting a brief prayer or scripture in the “label” section, a different prayer prompt pops up throughout the day.
