How do we recognize divine opportunities? Today's guest, Pray.Com Co-Founder Matthew Potter, shares incredible true testimonies and insights to empower you to fulfill God's dream for your life.

Matthew Potter is a co-founder of, the
world’s #1 app for daily prayer and faith-based
audio content, driven by a mission to grow faith and
cultivate community. He brings expertise in the
areas of strategizing change, building tech products
and apps, and finding markets in the continuously
evolving technology industry.

Potter shares his personal testimony as a child adopted through a providential connection between two pastors. During high school, Matt started a technology company and built 7,000 apps for real estate companies. Though his company rose to thrive over the years, Potter began to feel a lack of purpose. While seeking a way to contribute to the church, Matt encountered his friend at a coffee shop. Steve shared how his business partner's recent death prompted a friend to share a pastor's sermon. This sermon inspired Steve to become a Christian. Yet he expressed his concern to Matt about how he might never have found this content on his own, so he wanted to develop a place where people could easily find Christian content. Steve and Matt discussed the creation of Pray.Com at this divine opportunity in a coffee shop.

All four co-founders worked together to build world-class content and technology for Christians and seekers. Many miracles and providential moments ensued. In December of 2022, surpassed a billion listening minutes of content shared over a hundred million times. The app helps listeners in their spiritual and mental health, a growing need in our nation today.
