ECHO EXISTS TO HELP YOU PRAY

We believe that prayer is a powerful and effective way for us to connect with God. If you're anything like us, the biggest obstacles that keep you from praying are difficulty organizing or keeping a list of your prayers, then actually remembering to pray for those things when life gets busy. Echo was created to solve these problems, and to give you space to engage with your Creator.

WE WANT TO HELP YOU PRAY WITHOUT CEASING

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Even with the constant pressures of daily life, prayer is as vital as it has ever been to stay centered and connected to God. Echo helps integrate prayer into your daily routine, allowing you to stay in conversation with God in the midst of your busy life.

KEEPS TRACK OF ALL YOUR PRAYERS

Echo lets you keep a list of every single one of your prayers. You can add as many prayers as you want, organize them into groups, delete
old prayers, and even mark prayers as answered so you can
see how God is working (and remember to thank Him!).


REMINDS YOU TO PRAY

You can easily set up push notifications or emails to remind you to pray for individual prayers, or even groups of prayers. Reminders help you engage with God throughout the week, even when you find yourself busy with life.


GIVES YOU THE SPACE TO PRAY

Echo gives you the ability to "Pray Now" which gives you a clear, focused way to pray. Choose what you would like to pray for and optionally set a timer for how long you want to pray.

THE STORY & MISSION OF ECHO

In February of 2006, Ben Rugg decided to turn away all of his freelance web design work and begin developing a prayer reminder service. His intention was to create a web application that would help him and his small group keep track of their prayer requests and remind them to pray for each other throughout the week. After working solely on this web-based service for three months, he launched Echo Prayer.

Over the eight years since that launch, Echo has grown to nearly 20,000 users across the world, sending out close to 100,000 prayer reminders a day via email and text message.

After co-founding Clover (a company that makes websites and provides online donation tools for ministries and non-profits), Ben and his business partner, Jim Elliston, had been hoping to start a re-development on Echo. Their goal was to create a modern solution to the same problems Ben faced with his small group in 2006. Unfortunately the demands of running a business forced Echo to be a side project for the past eight years... Until now.

Echo's number one goal is to help people pray.
Whether it be to simply keep track of prayer requests, give space to engage with God, or simply help remind people to pray... Echo is a tool to help Christ-followers engage with God.

PRAYER CONNECTS US

There is something beautiful and exciting that happens when we see God answer prayers.
As we see prayers answered, our faith gets stronger, which in turn causes us to pray even more and feel even more empowered to share what God is doing.

What's new in version 1.3.0

We've finally squished a few sneaky bugs in the new Apple Watch app:

Notifications are now a lot more helpful, showing you the title of your prayer, the reminder time, and a little bit of the description. You can also act on the notification with a Pray Now button that jumps you right into the watch app, where you can set the timer and pray specifically for just that one prayer, distraction-free.

Glances now refresh a lot more often so the next reminder displayed is much more accurate.

Introduced in version 1.1.8

Echo for Apple Watch

We’ve created a custom Pray Now mode exclusively for the Apple Watch. Set the timer, and Echo will automatically cycle through all your prayers - right on your wrist. Get your prayer reminders quickly with a subtle tap, and see your next upcoming prayer reminder, or a suggested prayer with Glances.



Today Widget

Seeing your prayers and upcoming reminders is now just a swipe away from any screen on your iPhone. It puts your reminders right alongside other important information about your day, and also gives you quicker access to jump into adding a prayer, or starting Pray Now mode. Just add the new widget to your Today view to get started.

If you need help anytime, just swipe down with two fingers on any screen in the Echo app to quickly access support articles or even send us a quick message without leaving the app.
