Man listening to Plan on headphones

For years we’ve offered Plans from select partners that featured custom audio narration. Now, using a brand new text to speech engine, you can listen to almost any Bible Plan we offer!

When you’re browsing Plans, just look for the Speaker icon icon. When you start a Plan that has audio, simply tap the Speaker icon icon on the devotional, then press Play icon. And, if the Bible version you’re using offers audio, the Bible App will even read that day’s Scripture selection to you!

Let God’s Word speak life into your day, all day.

When you think of the Christmas season, what comes to mind? What’s going on around us can easily distract us from seeking intimacy with Immanuel, “God with us.”

But whatever this season holds, you can cling to this truth: because of Jesus’ arrival, you have a future and your hope will not be cut off.

So today, join us in reflecting on the coming of our Savior by taking part in the Christmas Challenge.

Just complete any Christmas or Advent Plan between now and December 31, and you’ll earn the 2020 Christmas Challenge Badge!

2020 Year in Review

2020

Seeking God
Every Day.

Months before the pandemic began, God was already at work in our world. Only He knew that COVID-19 restrictions would require the global Church to find digital ways to seek Him daily in community.

2020 has been full of unprecedented times, but we’ve also seen God move in unprecedented ways:

This year, the amount of people turning to God and His Word increased.

450,000,000

Total Bible App Installs

52,000,000+ installs in 2020

Because God had already positioned and prepared our team, we were honored to take part in providing spiritual resources for people in crisis.

So right now, let’s reflect on God’s faithfulness by celebrating all that He’s done through the YouVersion Community in 2020.

Prayer

“The ability to share prayer requests, praise, and also pray for others has really helped the feelings of fear and isolation. The Holy Spirit has used it to give me prayers and inspiration to encourage others to lean into God during these uncertain and difficult times.”

—Donna

YouVersion Prayer was created to help people have honest conversations with God, in community. And since its launch in March 2020, this is what’s happened:

“I am so thankful for the new addition of Verse of the Day Stories. It is very encouraging and gives specific guidance towards entering into the presence of God in relational prayer—and that is the most important thing.”

—Blake

Have you ever tried to study God’s Word but you didn’t know how to begin? Through reflection questions, daily prayers, Bible Plans, and video content from global leaders, Verse of the Day Stories is helping thousands of people like Blake draw closer to God.

“We have a 6-year-old daughter who loves to read. However, we could never get her interested in reading the Bible. That is, not until we uploaded the Bible App for Kids. Now she asks to read through it and share it with her friends. So as a 6-year-old, she is sharing the Gospel of Christ.”

And this is only the beginning of what we believe God is going to accomplish in the years to come.
