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

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.

Cost: Free!

6.) Jesus Calling Devotional – Daily Devo App
Description: It seems like some Christians find ways to be mad about everything from Beauty and the Beast to Justin Bieber. I happen to LOVE this devotional and it has been incredibly helpful to me (and millions of others).

Why you need it: A short daily devotional that includes quick Bible verses to read.

Features: This App includes everything from the book. You can also search by topic and easily share to social media.

Cost: $9.99 – A hefty price. You can get the physical book cheaper, however, the convenience of always having this with you might be worth it.

7.) Daily Audio Bible – Exactly like it sounds
Description: My favorite podcast in APP form. Ever have a season where life is so chaotic you have no time to read the bible? Or, do you start a Bible reading plan only to abandon it 3 days later? This App has really helped me in times I’ve felt distant from God. Every day a new recording is released with a reading from the Old Testament, New Testament, a Psalm and a Proverb. Perfect for at night before bed or on a commute.

Why you need it: It’s a great way to get to know the word of God more intimately.

Features: Audio recordings, Bible readings in text form as well as many other awesome resources.

Cost: Super Free!

8.) Storybook Bible for Kids – The Best Faith App for Kids!
Description: Help your kids fall in love with the Word of God through this fun, interactive app! Including over 40 bible stories, finally a faith App that kids will love!

Why you need it: A go-to app for kids that mostly doesn’t involve birds flying through the air (except the dove’s in Noah’s Ark…)

Features: 41 Bible stories just for kids, kid-friendly navigation, games, and activities that help kids remember what they’re learning, touch-activated animations and two-year companion curriculum for churches available.

Cost: Free

9.) IHOPKC – International House of Prayer App

Description: Confession: I didn’t find this app until I started writing this article and I LOVE IT. Holy Grape Tomatoes it’s kind of blowing my mind. From articles to music to videos, radio, daily devotionals, growth plans. It goes on and on and on. Seriously, if you get one App, start here. Stop wasting your time scrolling through Facebook and open this bad boy instead.
