15 Must-Have Christian Apps to Grow & Inspire Your Faith

As many of you know, I am one of those very strange individuals who doesn’t own a Smart Phone. Oh the humanity…

The short story: I hated how addicted to social media I was. I hated how I spent every moment in grocery lines and waiting rooms glued to a screen. Two summers ago, I got to spend two weeks loving up on a bunch of kids with special needs, and while I was there, I realized no part of me missed my lame smart phone.

This is Kiki, my favorite human on the planet.


When I got back, I made the drastic decision to ditch the smart phone for someone a little less high maintenance. Enter: Flip.

Bonus: Adele and I have the same phone… so…


This little change saves me over $80 a month and I felt more FREE. I used much of that money to become a monthly sponsor for Kiki. Visit BeyondOurDoor.org to sponsor a kid yourself or other amazing projects around the world. [Check out my full post: Why I Said Goodbye to my Smart Phone here]

Don’t worry, I am not completely a senior citizen when it comes to phone technology…

I bought an iPod Touch so I can stay up-to-date with all Insta-Snap-Book happenings and all the other awesome Apps. Don’t worry, my elementary students aren’t impressed either. Through the years I have found a number of glorious tools to help my faith journey and today I am going to share them with all you beautiful people.

Despite my lack of smartphone, I still have found a number of glorious tools to help my faith journey and today I am going to share them with all you beautiful people. Woop, woop!

Enough about me… this is about you. So let’s do this!

1.) YouVersion Bible App – The Best Bible App!

Description: Over 1,000 Versions of the Bible including audio, bookmark your favorite verses, search hundreds of reading plans and get notifications each day if you choose. Turn any time into time with God. Waiting in a long line at the grocery store? Instead of coming through political rants on Facebook, spend a few moments in the word of God to find a few moments of peace and encouragement.=

Why you need it: It’s the ESSENTIAL Bible App.

Cost: Free

2.) Pray As You Go – Daily Prayer App

Description: Pray as you go is a daily prayer session designed to go with you… wait for it… wherever you go. A new prayer session is produced every weekday and one session for the weekend. It is not a ‘Thought for the Day’, a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer.

Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection. This App is perfect for a walk or while snuggling under a warm blanket. After the bible app, this is my absolute favorite!

Why you need it: It’s an amazing tool for prayer and creating space to be with God wherever you are.

Features: Daily prayer sessions, liturgical calendar, questions for reflection.

Cost: Free [Looking for other prayer ideas? Check out 30 Ways to Up Your Prayer Game]

3.) SermonAudio – Worldwide Downloadable Sermon Database

Description: Talk about sermon overload… this incredible resource has over 1.2 million sermons! Holy flamingos, that’s a lot of Jesus talk! You can search this database by topic, speaker, featured sermons, or event categories. You can download audio or video sermons to your phone for when you have some spare time. I love to listen to Francis Chan on my morning commute.

Why you need it: It’s THE BEST resource for downloading awesome sermons.

Features: Search for sermons by topic, speaker, featured sermons or event categories. Save sermons to listen to at any time.

Cost: Free!

4.) Verses – Bible Memorization App


Description: I desperately want to be one of those people who have a ton of Bible verses memorized but I just super am not. I can usually share the gist… along with a guess of what book it can be found in. This App has been a huge help in actually making memorizing God’s Word happen in my life!

Why you need it: Stay close to the passages your memorizing with the Verses app. Play quick memory games to advance and keep track of your progress alone & with friends.

Features: Verses excells at quick, low energy, memory games. Our games range from Familiarize to Memorize to Recall. Create a collection and invite your friends to keep each other accountable. A little friendly competition can be a good thing.

Cost: Free!

5.) Got Questions– Answers about Faith, God, Jesus, the Christian Life.


Description: If you have a heartbeat, I guarantee you have questions about where you came from, what the purpose of your life is and whether or not there is a heaven. This app is an amazing resource to look through and share with other believers whether they are new to faith or life-long believers.

Why you need it: Part of this whole faith journey thing is wrestling with really tough questions. Also it is one of my favorite apps to share with new or on-the-fence believers. 🙂

Features: Search for sermons by topic, speaker, featured sermons or event categories. Save sermons to listen to at any time.
