We all promise ourselves to pray for all the things we want and to wish others well; however, with increasingly busy lifestyles, we easily and often slip up on upholding these promises.
If you're looking for a way to manage and organize the things you need to pray for, Pray4Today is a fantastic tool that can help you in your endeavors.
Available for purchase in the app store for a mere 99 cents, this app also comes with free online backup and restore to ensure you don't lose your information even if you switch devices. Let's take a look at how it works.
Pray4Today comes in a very minimalist 0.8 MB packaging, which seemed too simple at first glance. My evaluation, however, was mistaken because this app has all that you could possibly need to organize your prayers.
Users can add prayer requests by filling out a few fields such as name, notes, frequency of prayer, along with days of the week or month on which you'd like to pray for a specific purpose, such as praying for pastors on Mondays and Thursdays.
Tags can also be added to prayer requests by checking existing tags or by typing in a new tag. This makes for easy searching if you need to look for certain prayers whether they were prayers from months ago or ones lined up in the future.
Once you've set up the prayers for the day, this app will do all the work for you. Each day when you wake up or when you go to bed, you will be able to view a listing of all the prayers lined up for you on that day including the name, the start date, and a short description written by you when you entered the prayer into this app.
What's more is that you can even tap on the “answered” button to log the prayers that God has answered for you. There is an option to view the past answered prayers as well, which can ignite or rekindle the sense of hope that the things you pray for will be answered.
You can even email each item to yourself for referral later in the day, or to others to show that you have been praying for them.
View today's prayer items, all active pray items or answered prayer items to see how God has answered your prayers
Email prayer details to yourself or others to let them know you're praying for them

There is nothing negative to say about this app
I think Pray4today is one of the best prayer apps available on the App Store, so if you want to ensure you don't miss out on praying for someone or something, this app is a must-have on your iPhone or iPad.
