The Pray! app lets you set reminders to notify you of prayer requests. This is a great app if you want to set reminders to pray for someone during their surgery, interview, or at any specific time of day.

From their website: Pray! has been developed by one person to address the need for more efficient management of prayer requests. Despite a love for fountain pens and paper, keeping track of prayer requests on a phone seemed more useful and efficient. Pray! is the result of that thought process.
