Around 8,000 people a day are listening to the Church of England’s prayer podcast.
Premier News reports, the podcast is integrated into the free Daily Prayer app – enabling worshippers to listen to the short services of Morning, Evening and Night prayer.
Launched in March, the podcast has surpassed 500,000 downloads, with around 8,000 people listening a day, either alone or in small groups.
The Bishop of Gloucester, Rachel Treweek says, whether its praying alone, or alongside others, the podcast is an easy way for people to be united in prayer.
Daily Prayer is the latest in a series of apps and podcasts available from the Church of England.
Last year they were accessed eight million times – which was up 50 percent on the previous year due to the pandemic.
