If you’re anything like me you rely on a daily schedule to accomplish everything on your “todo” list.  In the hustle and bustle of our daily routines it is easy to forget something along the way.  One thing we mustn’t every forget in our daily lives is prayer.  Prayer is vital.  Necessary.  Prayer is that critical connection to our Father in heaven who desires our fellowship and conversations.  Coupled with our busy lives, our children, grandchildren, youth at church need our prayers!  How often do we honestly pray for them?  This isn’t a guilt trip, this is an honest review of a tool that we can employ as a daily reminder.

Think of this app as a call to personal prayer for your children!  Do you need help and accountability in this area of your spiritual life?  Then check out this new app!  I am not saying that our lives should revolve around technology, but this could be a very useful tool to remind us and to guide us in moments of prayer for our children!

The ’31 ways to pray for your children’ has a very simplistic user-friendly interface that directs the app user to daily readings as a help for directed prayers.  Here are a few screen shots:

The opening screen gives you two choices: Read the selected reading for the day, or merely start with the very first reading.

Another useful tool is the daily reminder setup.  The user can set up a daily reminder so that prayers for our children is not an after thought, but is brought to the forefront in the form of a notification.

This interface of this app is simplistic.
It is also aesthetically pleasing to the eye,
and provides us with the opportunity to not only remember to pray for our children but also provides directed readings of the day so that our thoughts are trained.

Bottom line: Should you buy this app?
Cost: $1.99.
If you’re like me, paying $2 for an app isn’t much of a stretch if you buy apps all the time.  The real question for us is do we need helpful reminders to pray for our kids?  I say ‘Yes’!  In our world full of pressures and dangers our children need our prayers!  We cannot neglect this important, powerful tool!  I would probably pay much more if it helped me focus and train my thoughts on my children as I attempt to bathe them in prayers daily.  I am sure you would do the same.  Check this app out!  I’m giving “31 Ways To Pray For Your Kids” four out of five stars!  stars
