We recently launched YouVersion Prayer, designed to help us have honest conversations with God, in a time when we are all searching for answers. When you hear people talk about hearing from God, what do they mean? Maybe you’ve tried before to read from the Bible, but you found it hard to understand. Or maybe you just don’t know where to start…

“I want to draw closer to God, but…”

Some days, it can feel like all of life’s demands are conspiring together to consume you. But, seeking God in His Word has the power to bring positive change into your life. How do you find that daily rhythm? By setting small, achievable goals… and taking them on one by one.

Motivate yourself.

Build momentum.

Your home feed shows your progress on Badges. Go to your profile to see all the Badges you’ve unlocked so far… and which other Badges are available. Once you’ve encouraged yourself with some of the smaller Badges, maybe you’ll feel inspired to chase the Whole Bible Badge.

And inspire others.

Your friends will see your Badges in their feeds, or you can share your journey and invite them to join you, on social media or by text. And, when you see your friends’ Badge progress in your feed, you can like or comment to encourage them.
