prayer

Tired of talking the big G.O.D all by yourself? Need company on the narrow path to transcendence or divine provision? It’s 2014, so of course there’s an app for that. Prayerbox is an online platform that lets you share prayer points and testimonies with friends, family and religious communities.

And because social features are now a popular app staple, the website also allows you connect with other “prayer warriors”.

Using the platform is straightforward. You sign up and start posting prayers. Ostensibly, your prayers go to heaven, but definitely to prayerbox’s servers which turns it into a prayer feed that you and the people that follow you/you follow can view. If you’re viewing someone’s prayer feed, you can “heart” a particular prayer. Or you can just pray for them.

You can also search for prayer points, people or churches. Altogether, this is like a Twitter for praying.

“People are sometimes confined to gathering together religiously once a week in most religions, and during these gatherings there are a lot of people”, says Bambo Oyelaja, creator of Prayerbox.

“Connecting to religious leaders this way is difficult, hence prayerbox. The platform allows users to connect to their religious leaders anytime, anywhere. It also gives them a platform through which they can connect religiously outside their religious gatherings”.

Bambo goes on to say the platform will eventually allow users pay tithes and offerings directly to their churches through their mobile phones.

We’re not sure how many faiths Prayerbox intends to support going forward, but right now, it’s all about Jesus on Prayerbox.

Prayerbox is backed by 440, the incubator partnership of L5 Labs and 88mph.
