[prMac.com] Barcelona, Spain - BCNmultimedia today is pleased to introduce Children's Bible Daily Prayer 1.0 for iOS, their free Education app that offers children a brief, new Bible quote every day. Created for Christian families, teachers, catechists, and children of all ages, the app provides a wonderful way to share, at any place or in any circumstance, the Word of God with children. This new app makes it easy to talk to kids about Jesus and God in this hurry-up world. BCNmultimedia is very well known by Christian families for their popular Children's Bible, which consistently ranks in the Top 50 of the App Store Books category.
Inspired by the Bible quote, "Be like newborn babies, always thirsty for the pure spiritual milk, so that by drinking it you may grow up and be saved," (1 Peter 2:2) scriptwriter Toni Matas and the Children's Bible team have created the Children's Bible Daily Prayer app to provide children and their families, teachers, and catechists with a daily sip of that spiritual milk that is the Word of God.
By providing a quote from the Bible and a question about it, Children's Prayer can be an ideal basis on which to begin a prayer or a dialogue with kids within the family, at school, or at catechism. The app allows users to review quotes from previous days to help foster greater understanding and the connection between quotes. Each daily quote is written on a large white card, and touching it spins the card around to the other side, revealing a question about the quote.
The prayers are grouped into a series, each of which has a themes used to select the Bible quote. Each series is introduced with a series card that displays a picture and a commentary on it. Sometimes, the series are focused on a theme and gather quotes from the entire Bible; for example, the series entitled "The Light." Other times, they include a sequence of verses from the same story; for example, in the series "The Good Shepherd." Each series has from seven to ten prayers, so each week a new series begins. An Internet connection is required only once per month to download the next series.
