Common Prayer helps today’s diverse church pray together across traditions and denominations with morning, midday, and evening prayers for every day of the year. With an ear to the particulars of how various liturgical traditions pray, this app offers a tapestry of prayer that celebrates the best of many traditions.

Liturgy comes to life as you tap on song titles in the Common Prayer app and sing along with the new monastic Rutba House community of Durham, North Carolina.

Following the 12 Marks of New Monasticism, this app also offers guidance for putting faith into action each month, complete with links to further reading that will deepen your understanding of how God is at work in the world.

Ultimately, Common Prayer makes liturgy dance, taking the best of the old and bringing new life to it with a fresh fingerprint for the contemporary renewal of the church. Churches and individuals who are familiar with with Shane Claiborne and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove will enjoy a video in which the two of them introduce this app and invite users to pray along with them, the communities, and New Monastics around the world.
