YouVersion Bible App YouVersion

“We aren't just building a tool to impact the world using innovative technology… we are engaging people [in] relationships with God as they discover the relevance the Bible has for their lives.” ~ YouVersion website 

Currently on more than 60 million devices all over the world, “YouVersion: The Bible App” was created by LifeChurch.tv, whose purpose is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. YouVersion lets you read, listen to, share, highlight, take notes on, and bookmark the Bible – in hundreds of Bible versions and dozens of languages – for FREE. It also offers a large variety of reading plans and devotional plans for every season and walk of life.

But our favorite feature of this software at Bridge Church is that it lets us create a “live event” for each of our services that lists the message title, theme, and Scriptures, along with survey questions and places to take notes. By accessing this live event, you can follow along, take notes, and participate in surveys DURING the message or at a later time in the week. Now THAT’s connecting!

Here are some of the features you can access on your phone or other mobile device:

7:14  Prayer App

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” ~ 2 Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)

 

The 7:14 Prayer Movement, in conjunction with the Assemblies of God, created the 7:14 Prayer App for iPhone, iPad, and Android. The purpose of this app is to encourage Christians to develop the habit of praying.

 

Unsure how to pray? Want to deepen your prayer time? Want to learn about fasting? This app is the place for you. In addition to helpful instructions on these and other topics, the app includes a daily devotional, Bible readings, prayer reminders, and a place to record and track your own prayer lists.

 

Just as important, the 7:14 Prayer App gives you the opportunity to join with thousands of others across the nation to pray and even lets you see nationwide prayer participation. This is your opportunity to get involved in the movement that can shape our nation!

 

App Features Include: 

  • Daily devotionals
  • Daily readings
  • Preloaded prayer lists for U.S. Missions, World Missions, and Across the Nations
  • Ability to add your own personal prayer lists
  • Prayer time reminders, which can be set to 7:14 am, 7:14 pm, or a custom time
  • “I PRAYED TODAY” button, which counts the number people who have prayed and displays a map of the United States showing participation in each state
  • List of recommended reading that you can download to your Kindle, iBook, or Nook
  • Articles on how to pray, how to fast, and Holy Spirit Baptism
