Prayers and Thanksgivings App

Android Phones and Tablets

This App is based on the Prayers and Thanksgivings chapter in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer (Episcopal Church) beginning on page 809. The purpose of the App is to provide easy access to more than 120 Prayers and Thankgivings available using a simple to use interface. Also included is the Prayers of the People (Forms I through VI) normally found on page 383 of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer (Episcopal Church). I hope you and your family find this App spiritually enriching for your souls and enjoy it as much as I do with my family.
