ORA Introduces a New Way to Pray – With a Prayer App

By Pastors.com Staff

BELLINGHAM, WA – ORA NET LLC announces its new initiative introducing a disruptive technology to promote the oldest form of recognized religious expression in the Christian and Jewish faiths–prayer. The ORA system creates a personal mobile experience for the individual and an enterprise-quality community management platform for any organization to invite, connect, share, respond and interact with one another in intercessory prayer.

“That’s a lot of words to describe it, but ORA’s technology gives us the ability to do so much more to leverage existing social networks and mobile devices to connect individuals in the most meaningful relationship they can have with others and with God,” said Jeff Bone, Chief Marketing Officer for ORA.

The Bellingham, WA, company has introduced what many are calling one of the most revolutionary developments for the faith community to be released in decades.

“ORA collects, organizes, tracks, reminds, connects and securely shares prayer requests and answers with anyone you choose. ORA does this at a personal and intimate level with your friends and family through the mobile platform or ‘app’ on your smartphone. And ORA does this at the organizational level through the ORA Community software that a church, mission agency, ministry, foundation or any number of other organizations can use with their existing infrastructure. It’s both personal and organizational. We all maintain a number of social and spiritual connections within a broad community that includes our favorite people and our favorite places of worship and ministry.” Stated Dusty Gulleson, ORA Chief Executive Officer.

“We’re looking forward to integrating Ora into the life of both our physical and online church congregations.  What an incredible tool to engage communities of believers around the power of prayer!”  stated Nils Smith, Web Pastor at Community Bible Church of San Antonio.

Social networks are typically inappropriate “high noise” areas that are not private enough for many sensitive postings like prayer requests. ORA offers an environment where prayer is the most important thing. ORA not only makes prayer available on your smartphone, but it makes comments, reminders and prayer partners always available too. ORA offers immediate feedback to requests, questions and comments from prayer partners and helps to track and remind the user of how prayers are answered immediately or over time. ORA helps you get a glimpse of the eternal that can be missed when we’re caught up in the stress of everyday life.

ORA is a free download for iPhone (and is coming soon for Android). The ORA smartphone app integrates into the ORA Community system. The ORA Community system is a software as a service (SaaS) solution designed with many more management features that allows an organization to administer community-wide prayer communication and easily integrate with existing email, church management or relationship management software from leading providers. For a limited time, ORA is offering a no-cost trial of the ORA Community system for an organization. Visit the ORA website for more information: http://ora.net
