In this connected world, we often fail to keep the most important connection alive and well — our connection to the Lord in prayer.
As a multitasker myself, I often get very busy and find it difficult to spend time in prayer and meditation with the Lord.

Some of you may already download audio lessons and sermons to hear in your car — using your phone in Bluetooth-enabled vehicles.
If so, amen! But can we enrich our prayer time the same way?
This app can read aloud my prayer list from a document or from a website.
If your church posts its bulletins online, for example, you can call up the app, have it read through the prayer requests and pray along while you drive. It is very easy to use and set up.
Voice Aloud also will read Bible lesson outlines, articles and just about anything else you can throw at it, provided that it’s available in a text format (including PDF and TXT files and Microsoft Word documents). Find the app in the Google Play store.
Have an Apple device instead? There are several read-aloud apps in the iTunes store for you to try, including Read to You
by Paul Buckly. The app is available in free “Lite” versions and $1.99 full versions for both iPhone and iPad.
