There’s an app for that.

We hear this about everything these days, right?

Websites are catching app fever too, as more specialized single-purpose websites are being created.

Faith life is not immune to this trend either. Let’s take prayer for example.

If you have ever journaled your prayer life, you already know how amazing it is to witness the journey you take — not to mention that you are able to see how many prayers are answered over time.

Well, those that are allergic to pen and paper in this digital Google age, can find some peace knowing that a new website is transferring the experience of prayer journaling online.

FRVNT.com is a website app for prayer lists.

And they are adding a social component (of course!) to it as well.

You can enter your own prayers — made them private or public.

And then you can also see other people’s public prayer requests and respond, letting them know you will be praying for them. A great feature is that if you raise your hand to pray for someone else, you’ll be notified if they come back and mark it “answered” — a great feedback look that helps encourage all of us to keep on praying!

FRVNT.com just came out of beta recently, so it will be interesting to see if new functionality will come online over the next few months ahead. Facbook integration or some other way to better integrate it into your daily habits online via other web properties might be nice.

But as-is, this is a neat site to explore and see if you can fit it into your daily praxis and faith walk.

Check out www.FRVNT.com and add your own prayer request or better yet, pray for someone else right now.
