Managing Prayer Cards and Devotions
Create a Prayer Account
Create a separate account for texts that you want to read regularly rather than memorise. Since the references probably play a minor role, you can select the option “Learn by Topic” when setting up the account.
You can add texts in the “New” box or import a collection of texts from “Collections”. Some kind of numbering is useful as reference. For example, if you split up a collection of long prayers into individual prayer cards - such as the books by Stormie Omartian - the references could be 1a, 1b, 1c, 2a, 2b etc. References are used to sort the cards. It is also helpful to add a topic to each prayer.
Sort the prayers by topic or by reference (alphabetically) by tapping the “New” tab a second time. It is best to say the prayers aloud and in your own dialect or words. This way, even preconceived prayers can turn into a personal conversation with God. Write down impressions and thoughts that become important to you during prayer below the prayer text (“Edit verse”). In this way, your prayer account also becomes your prayer diary and reflects part of your communication with God. Move the prayer after your daily devotion to the “Due” box to keep track of your prayer progress. The “Known” tray is not needed for prayers.
Reusing a Prayer Collection
If you want to start over with a prayer collection after you have completed it, select a prayer (long press), then “select all”, and move the whole collection back to the “New” box.
