LANCASHIRE'S most senior Bishop, the Rt Rev Julian Henderson, has given his backing to a new free ‘prayer app’ initiative from the Church of England.

The app has been designed to enable people to pray with the aid of their smartphone and tablets. Daily Prayer (a new app for iPhone/iPad) gives people the ability to follow the daily pattern of morning, evening and night prayer in the words of the Anglican liturgy.
