Lisa Whittle launches ‘5 Word Prayers Daily’ podcast

New daily devotional podcast debuts in the Top 25 Christianity podcasts
on iTunes; inspires, encourages and equips in only five minutes

Charlotte, NC (January 3, 2018) – Podcasts are more popular than ever, with four in ten Americans tuning in, according to the latest digital research. We listen for a variety of reasons including encouragement, entertainment and insight. For many, life is busy and podcasts allow listeners to fill whatever pockets of time they have—15, 30 or even 60 minutes—with content that piques their interest.

Lisa Whittle, author, speaker and founder of Ministry Strong, launched the 5 Word Prayers Daily podcast on January 1 with new episodes releasing each weekday throughout the year. In only five minutes—which everyone has, whether it’s during a morning commute, waiting for kids in the school pickup line or loading the dishwasher—Lisa shares a spoken daily devotional consisting of Scripture, commentary and a closing five-word prayer that equips, inspires and encourages listeners on their daily journey with Jesus.

“The heart behind 5 Word Prayers Daily is for it be a Jesus-led, heart-centered community to talk about the real things we all walk through in this life, offer God our heart every step of the way, and encourage us to keep going,” said Whittle. “Never have we craved a like-hearted community of Jesus followers more than now; to know we are not alone in our desire to be spiritually strong, even if we don’t share the same physical space.”

A spoken daily devotional, 5 Word Prayers Daily is a daily kick-start, a voice of hope, truth, and inspiration, with an understanding friend that provides Biblical truth that points to Jesus. Lisa covers topics such as relationships, prayer, faith, parenting, spiritual transformation, hot topics and much more.

5 Word Prayers Daily debuted in the Top 25 Christianity podcasts on iTunes.
