Pray for YouVersion’s Bible App to Spark Increased Bible Reading in Churches
Ask God to bless efforts by church leaders to encourage daily engagement with Scripture through the Bible App
Imagine you’re sitting in a church service. The pastor approaches the pulpit and says, “Please take out your phones.” Confused, you think, Aren’t cell phones forbidden in church?
Not anymore. More and more churches are turning to technology—including smartphones—to inspire daily Bible reading habits in churchgoers.
YouVersion designed a free Bible App to help people fully engage with the Bible, right on their phone. To date, more than 260 million people have downloaded the app. Through features like highlighting key verses, making notes, and sharing Bible passages on social media, users can regularly connect to the transformative power of Scripture.
Even more believers could benefit from this app. That’s why we’re inviting you to join us in praying for church leaders as they share the Bible App with their congregations to encourage daily Bible reading.
Let’s pray that people will respond to churches’ invitations to engage with God’s Word.
- God’s Favor. Pray that when church leaders share the Bible App with churchgoers, it will be well received and will inspire more engagement with God’s Word.
- Innovation. Pray for the church to be a place of innovation, creating new resources to help inspire daily Bible reading.
- Growth. Pray that as church leaders and churchgoers read the Bible daily, they will be drawn closer to God.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
Help us share God's Word where needed most.
