What are you praying for?

Man praying

Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude.


Healing? Peace? Protection? A breakthrough? Are you praying for yourself? Or for someone you care about? Whatever you’re praying for, consider inviting someone you trust to pray with you.

Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.


Hopefully you’ve already discovered that YouVersion’s new Prayer feature is a great way to keep track of everything you’re praying for. But YouVersion Prayer also lets you include friends in your conversation with God. When you add a Prayer, all you need to do to invite others to pray is tap Share with Friends.

Share with friends on Prayer card

The Prayer Chain feature lets your Bible App Friends share your Prayer with their Friends, who can then share it with their Friends, and so on.

Raising a family is hard.

What does it mean to
be a “Good Parent”?

Raising a family can be hard. We all want to give our kids more than we had—security and stability, enriching experiences, and opportunities to grow. How do we lead our children spiritually, towards creating a better world?

Thankfully, we don’t have to figure it out alone. Many have gone before us, documenting their experiences with things that worked for them. These Bible Plans can help you through different stages on your journey:

Bible Lens is Leaving May 31

Bible Lens

So long, Bible Lens.
Thanks for the memories!

Bible Lens

In 2018, we launched Bible Lens to help reveal Scripture in your life’s special moments. And it’s possible that one day this feature could live inside the Bible App.

But, for now, rather than continuing to expand Bible Lens, we’re focusing instead on creating new features that help you seek God every day—like Prayer and Verse of the Day Stories—with more on the way.

Although Bible Lens will be removed from the app stores and will no longer work after May 31, you can keep your Bible Lens moments by saving them to your camera roll before May 31st.

Thank you for being a special part of our global YouVersion Community, and for experiencing this journey with us. We’re so grateful for all the ways you shared each amazing Bible Lens a-ha! moment.

Here’s how you can still create your own
