Hallow Guided Prayer App Launches After Successful Kickstarter

December 5, 2018. For immediate release.

Hallow is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store as of December 5, 2018. Hallow is a mobile subscription app that aims to help users grow spiritually through different forms of prayer and Christian meditation. Hallow launches after a successful 3-week Kickstarter, having raised 125% of its $20,000 goal.

Hallow seeks to bridge the gap between popular mindfulness apps and faith-based content, providing an intuitive mobile app that helps users grow closer to God and find His peace through simple, guided contemplative prayer and meditation sessions. The idea isn’t to invent new ways to pray, but rather to make accessible the rich pool of spiritual methods that already exist within the Christian faith. Hallow is intended for use by anyone who seeks to grow in relationship with God and to find a place of rest in their lives. Co-Founder and CEO, Alex Jones, says that the app is hoping to address two challenges at once:

“There are two main issues here: First, there is an ever increasing amount of stress, busyness and pressure in today’s world. Second, people, especially young people, are incredibly interested in growing in their spiritual lives, yet are falling away from their faith lives quicker than ever before. We believe both of these needs can be addressed with the Hallow solution – an app that can help people re-engage with their faith and find a place of stillness and peace through relationship with God.”

Hallow offers guided sessions on prayers such as Christian Meditation, Lectio Divina (“divine reading” of the Bible), the Examen (a prayer that helps you look back through your day), and Spiritual Writing; all taken from centuries of Catholic experience and teaching. It organizes prayers into “praylists” with themes such as joy, humility, love, letting go, and calm. Furthermore, it provides prayer challenges to rediscover traditional prayers like the Our Father, the Stations of the Cross, and the Rosary.

Users have a choice of guides (male & female) and length of prayers (typically 5, 10, and 15 minutes), plus the ability to journal and save their reflections after each prayer, set reminders and favorites, download prayers for offline listening, and track progress (e.g. streaks, time in prayer).

Hallow begins with a one month free trial – including a 9-day introduction to three types of prayer – and then is offered as a subscription at $8.99 per month (30% less than the leading meditation apps). For every one subscription purchased, one will be given away for free to those looking to growing in their faith lives who are unable to afford a subscription.
