I am loving the Hallow app. As a working mom of two under two, sometimes it has seemed impossible to prioritize a prayer life. Hallow has given me a simple way to take time out of my day to be with God. I love that the sessions can be different lengths depending on how much time I have! And I love that it’s exposing me to a variety of prayer. I especially love Lectio Divina on Saturdays with the Sunday gospel since I’m often wrangling children during mass and it can be hard to concentrate. It’s the perfect way to prepare. Thank you to all involved in the creation of this app— it’s been life changing!!
Skeptical at first because I thought, "not even an app for prayer, can't I even pray without an app?" But I pray plenty throughout the day without an app. Hallow just helps with structuring my mornings and bedtime meditations better. Now my husband has joined me. This is a thoughtful, thankfully slow, peaceful aid to prayer. I'm so grateful to the folks who made it happen!
I’m trying to open the app so I can sign up for the free trial before the offer ends, but as soon as I open the app it crashes after one second.
As someone who has done headspace for years, I was so happy when I saw this app. The goal of the mediation is to connect with God, and this app will transform your life
Really a nice app. Great to have a guide to help in my faith journey.
Hallow is a wonderful starting point for those especially beginning prayer and meditation. At first, mental prayer may be challenging and may even seem daunting... Is there a formal method of praying with Scripture? How do we prepare ourselves for and begin prayer? How do we *truly* pray so that prayer bears fruit in our life? Thankfully, our answers can be found in our rich trove of Catholic prayer tradition. This is where Hallow comes in as a helpful tool by providing us a with a guide and structure in our prayer, and by exposing us to different forms and time-tested means of mental prayer. Or, feeling down and hoping to re-ground ourselves on gratitude and God’s goodness? Needing to make a decision and discern God’s will? Hallow has different prayer session topics/focuses that would suit our daily needs, which is very unique and helpful. It is also educational as you learn about what Christian hope and love are (amongst others) in the process of prayer through the guiding questions. I imagine and definitely foresee my incorporating this app into the formation of my high school youth in sacramental preparation, especially as a reinforcement and as a guide to praying by themselves at home. I definitely would recommend this app to any one hoping to deepen their prayer life through meditation. Overall, I wholeheartedly believe that every serious Christian who wants to deepen their prayer life and do God’s will must practice mental prayer, so thank you, Hallow for introducing us to mental prayer!

I’ve been trying for a while now to be more intentional about my day-to-day balance. I love, love, love how easy Hallow makes it to pause, reflect, and just get some breathing room away from the daily distractions. A few minutes invested into taking a broader and more purposeful approach to life makes all the difference!
Ive only experienced the introduction to Hallow but this short time of quiet and peace has made me hungry for more. To encounter God, and to sense His presence is what called me to do this program. I have been so distracted at prayer that I yearned for a conversion of heart and mind. I believe that Hallow will be my grateful pathway to deeper prayer.
I am a practicing Catholic and this app is consistently a pathway to Jesus and to true rest. Amongst a world where everyone and everything is competing for our attention, this app has provided a quiet please to hear God’s voice.
Hallow is just what my prayer life needed! I have incorporated the prayers and meditations into my daily prayer routine! I am very distractible so I love the options on how long the experiences are! I love that I can take a walk and pray the rosary and am led through! We have also used some of the meditations with my small women’s sharing group. My sisters in Christ love it! It’s super easy to use and they are updating information often! A+++!
