Vision & Values
Behold helps Christians center their lives and minds on God through guided prayers that invite listeners to hear and meditate on scripture.
Our mobile app, for iPhone and Android, features daily Lectio Divina style prayers, where scripture is read multiple times followed by silent reflection. It also includes collections of prayers on different topics and contemplative prayers styles. You can download Behold for iPhone here, and Android here.
Behold is biblical
Our work is deeply rooted in scripture and the church’s prayerful traditions
We center the Bible, and seek to help individuals come into greater contact with the word of God. We recognize that it’s easy for prayer to be self-centered, and instead we strive to hear what God is saying.
Behold is ecumenical
We believe that God has given truth to Christians in all cultures and places. We emphasize the unity of God’s people, and incorporate voices, topics, and prayers from ethnically, denominationally, and culturally diverse Christians.
Behold is relevant
We use relevant tools to bring God’s word to people. We strive to be up-to-date so that God’s word can meet people where they are. We prioritize simple and modern user experiences that connect to the realities of Christians today.
