iPrayU - How to Be a House of Prayer for Your Community

Episode 156 - Jim Buckman

God's power and greatness never stop amazing me. He finds ways to use common things to bring glory to His Name. In this week's episode, that “everyday” thing is an app for your smartphone.

As you listen, you'll hear Jim Buckman share about iPray. It's an app he created to help believers and churches find needs and pray for those in their local body and the community.

He explains how it works and can be a powerful tool – even in a biker bar. And throughout the conversation, he weaves a common thread of how important prayer is. About why we should pray for others.

From biblical descriptions to personal stories, Jim shows how prayer can impact our culture for God's glory.
