iPhone App Review: Promise2Pray

iPhone App Review: Promise2Pray

April 21st, 2010 by

Have you ever found yourself awake at night babbling aimlessly at the ceiling and not making a clear objective? Have you ever thought to pray for someone and forgot what their request was? Prayer is a powerful tool for a believer i used correctly. Often times a person may use a journal to help with organizing and recollection of their prayer list. This app is an electronic prayer journal that will assist the user in recalling their prayers, help to organize them into categories and acts as a reminder to the user.

Promise2Pray Pros:

I first started using this app a few days ago with expectations of a simple little app that would look good and ultimately not be used by myself. So far I have only seen the benefit from using Promise2Pray. The first thing that I have noticed simply was the amount of prayer requests that I had in my head seemed much larger when written down in this app. You can sort through your prayer list by category such as “Petition” and “Thanksgiving”. This was neat because it helped me visualize where my struggles and blessings are in my life. Beyond the capability to just categorize prayer, it has functions to: add prayers for the future, add contact info for someone you are praying for, search archived prayer, and add categories of prayer to sort into. It does all of this and still manages to look and function great.

Promise2Pray Cons:

One minor thing that I would like to see Promise2Pray have is contact photos. This is definitely not a necessity for this app but some people may like to associate a face with their prayers. Another great upgrade to this app would be the ability to password protect certain prayers. I say this because I prayed for guidance in considering proposing to my (now) wife a few years ago and if I was using an app like this at the time; her stumbling upon it may have ruined the surprise. Push notification would be a welcomed add to this app to remind the user of important dates in their prayer lists.

I did like Promise2Pray a lot. I was right in my initial assumption that it would be a great looking and functioning app but I was very wrong when it came to personal usefulness. I see myself using Promise2Pray for a long time and would recommend this app to anyone who is looking for some organization of their prayers and a great way to be reminded of what to be praying for.


– Categories
– View archived prayers
– View Future prayers
– Ability to add contact info
– Helps with overall organization of prayers


– Contacts can’t add photos
– No password protection for sensitive prayer
– No push notifications

I give this app an 7/10 for looking great and potential long term usefulness, but still needs a few upgrades
