Morgan Wood’s PrayerWorks App

Local resident brings spirituality to the age of tablets.

After being inspired by her own experience with personalized prayer, Eden Prairie resident Morgan Wood created PrayerWorks—an app for iPhones that allows people to submit prayer requests and receive notifications or “pings” when others have prayed for them. This process makes praying “timely and tangible,” Wood says, adding that PrayerWorks started as a website before expanding to an app. Organizations, including churches and radio stations, can subscribe to PrayerWorks; members of these organizations can download the app from iTunes for free.
