Description

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, and 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.

KEEP 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, categorize them, delete old prayers, and even mark prayers as answered so you can
see how God is working (and remember to thank Him!).


SHARE YOUR PRAYERS WITH OTHERS

You have the ability to share prayers with other individuals or groups. Share prayers with friends and family privately, or create a group of people and share prayers together. Sharing works great for small groups or focused communities committing to pray for each other throughout the week.


REMIND YOURSELF TO PRAY

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


PRAY WITHOUT DISTRACTION

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.


NOTIFY PEOPLE WHEN YOU’VE PRAYED FOR THEM

After praying for someone, send out a notification to let them know you’ve prayed for their shared prayer. You get the option of sending out a message of encouragement after praying for them in the “Pray Now” portion of the app.


FOLLOW & PRAY FOR YOUR MINISTRY

With Echo Feeds, you can follow any ministry and pray for them! If you are a church or ministry, replace your old-school prayer chain or email list with a platform that is beautiful, organized, powerful and instant. Send real-time updates to your network, and connect your community in prayer.

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.

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.
