Two Big Helps For Ministry

29 05 2012

There are two handy apps that have helped my prayer life and devotional times. I hate lugging things around. The fewer things I have to carry the happier I am. I also find that my mind is getting less able to remember all those things and people I need to pray about.

I really love Evernote for making prayer lists. I can have them with me anytime I have my iPhone or iPad. It makes it easy to update the list when someone asks for prayer. I can share those lists via email or a shared folder online. It’s great to have a place for all our elders and deacons to be able to upload information on answers and visits made.

My old large print Bible weighs a few pounds and takes up a lot of room in my backpack/briefcase. Now it is only as large as my iPhone or iPad that I carry almost everywhere. If I am waiting for my wife to finish shopping or sitting in the waiting room at the hospital I can always have my Bible to read. Sometimes I’ll think of a passage but can’t recall where it is found. YouVersion is snappy in its search features.

If you are like me and need access to your Bible always and take notes about your readings or prepare devotional thoughts do yourself a favor and use these two free tools.

You updated! šŸ™‚ I love Evernote and Youversion. One thing I started doing is using Evernote to database devotional and sermon notes for later use. It’s been SUPER handy with the tags and search.

Also mega useful for hymn-writing (database words, phrases, tune snippets, and more). Prayer lists, calls to worship, worship themes, and more. I have been known to have my worship theme in Evernote and multitask readings with Youversion right in the pulpit. Smooth as silk!
