About this app

No matter when or where, Portals of Prayer inspires you to live each day as a disciple of Christ. Through each daily audio-and-textual devotion, you meditate on God's Word and see it working through you in your life. New updates allow for a seamless and easy-to-use interface, keeping you focused on your devotional time.

What's New?

Welcome to the NEW Portals of Prayer App. There have been many updates to help make your experience seamless, from the subscription feature to how the devotions are displayed. Here's a list of all the new features:

Navigation Bar

Most of the navigational features have been moved from the top to the bottom. "Prayers" has now been renamed "Resources" to better represent its offerings. "Search" can now be found under the new "Archive" icon in the top right corner.


An updated design allows for a sleek and modern devotions screen. Press the Play button in the middle of the image to hear your audio devotion. Swipe right or left to see previous or future devotions.


Not only can you search based on topic or month, but devotions are now also categorized based on year and quarter to make finding a devotion from the print version that much easier.


The "Prayers" tab is now called "Resources" and includes daily prayers, prayers for special occasions, and author biographies.


The app now offers a dark mode for your reading convenience.


The app now syncs your favorites across all your devices so long as you use the same Concordia Publishing House account.

Concordia Publishing House Portals of Prayer App Subscription

While the Portals of Prayer App is free to download, you need a subscription to access all the amazing features. A new subscription is $9.99 per year and can be purchased through the app. Here's what each subscription includes:

- Daily audio and textual devotions
- Meaningful daily prayers

Your yearly subscription will auto-renew unless the auto-renew feature is turned off. To avoid being charged with the auto-renewal, it must be turned off at least 24-hours prior to the renewal date. You can see the end date of your subscription in the app's "Settings" tab.

Suspiciously good customer service! There was an issue with the app that I reported, I got a quick response, they ask for further details to help and then even emailed me to let me know the issue had been fixed and there was an update available a few days later. Love the app, so worth the yearly subscription. Im just amazed at the quality of the service in this day and age.

Very disappointed. My subscription has renewed, taken my money but now the app won't remember my logon, let me login or change my password. Still cant use the app. This is now ridiculous this is the second major fault I have had with the app. If the content wasn't so good I would have given up.

I have had this app for several years. I love to do my devotionals and share thru it...WHEN IT WORKS...which has been an ongoing problem for years but worse in recent weeks. CPH gives these lists of fixes that do nothing and I am past disappointed in it.
