Following the release of the first video series starring a pope, the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer) has now launched the Click To Pray application, an app that invites people throughout the world to join in prayer for the intentions of Pope Francis to address the challenges facing humanity. The app is available in both Android and iOS formats, so that people virtually everywhere can unite their prayers with the Pope’s easily and quickly every day.
Pope Francis seeks to promote the spirit of dialogue and interaction, so that each user of Click To Pray can join thousands of people praying for his and their own intentions.

It offers new content each day and connects millions of people from different cultures and languages around the world in praying for the universal challenges confronting humanity.
