Last edited 6th January 2014

The Bread 4 Today app provides access to daily prayers for reflection and meditation whenever you can spare a moment during the day. The prayer archive allows users to search past entries by category so that they can reflect on prayers that match their frame of mind. Its categories include: Courage, A just world, Relationships, Hope, Hard Times, Faith, Forgiveness and special intentions (calendar days of prayer and reflection). All prayers can be shared via social media with a tap of the screen, thanks to its integrated social media capabilities. This is definitely an app to have on your smart phone!
