Lectio 365 Morning Prayers are inspired by the ancient practice of ‘Lectio Divina’ (or ‘Divine Reading’); a way of meditating on the Bible that’s been used by Christians for centuries.

Night Prayers adapt the ancient practice of ‘The Examen’ with reflective questions, Bible readings and prayers to help process the day and prepare to sleep.

* Pray about global issues and headlines (e.g., the Ukraine war)
* Explore timeless Biblical themes (e.g., ‘The Names of God,’ or ‘The Teachings of Jesus’)
* Prepare for Christmas, Easter and Pentecost

Learn about the six Christian practices at the heart of the 24-7 Prayer movement and be inspired to build rhythms of:
* Prayer
* Mission
* Justice
* Creativity
* Hospitality
* Learning

24-7 Prayer started in 1999, when one simple student-led prayer vigil went viral, and groups all over the world joined in to pray non-stop. Now, nearly a quarter of a century later, thousands of communities have taken part in 24-7 Prayer (in-person and virtually) in their churches, communities and cities. 24-7 Prayer has helped individuals all over the world to encounter God in prayer rooms; now we want to help people develop a daily relationship with Jesus.

Love the concept, but I just downloaded this app 3 days ago, (newest version, and my phone is updated) but there is this weird pause/skip, like every 15-20 seconds. Incredibly distracting. It would be so much more effective without that glitch. I don't think I can do the audio anymore. Hope it gets fixed. I'll try it periodically...

I don't find devotionals in general (hard copy or app) to give the teaching, guidance, or challenge that I expect when approaching Scripture. That said, Lectio 365 stands apart. Built on the Early Church Fathers' pattern of Lectio Divina, this app aims at spiritual transformation. It accomplishes that goal better than any printed resource I've encountered - paper or electronic. Practically, the design is beautiful, the UI is intuitive, further resources abound, and the audio is meditative.

Simple UI and a clear path to engage the user right away. This app has replaced my other meditation and devotional apps for everyday use. Rich content and well thought out. I second other users asking for audio control integration (lock screen and notification area). Bonus if this could be integrated with Android Auto so I could use it in car mode.
