Find peace with Abide's Christian meditation appSAN MATEO – As fear of the COVID-19 increases across the globe, Abide Meditation sees hopeful signs of people turning to God in crisis. Abide’s Bible sleep stories have surged in listen time during the past two weeks. Listeners have spent over a million hours hearing Bible meditations in just two weeks.

As people become more anxious during extended periods of quarantine, and face possible job loss and financial challenges, former Google employee and Abide Co-Founder and CEO Neil Ahlsten recommends drawing closer to God to help calm fears and experience restful sleep.

“God is still on the throne. He is in control,” said Ahlsten. “Abide has created a new series of unique biblically-based content in response to these turbulent times.”

Launched in 2015, Abide now has roughly 1 million users per month representing over 200 countries. A number of studies reveal that prayer is positively associated with wellness and physical health.

A recent new listener to Abide said, “A friend of mine introduced me to this app a few weeks before the world came to a stand still with the outbreak of this virus. I didn’t know then just how much Abide would be the perfect thing for our world.” 

“God can handle your problems,” Ahlsten continued. “Hear God’s promises from scripture and fall asleep in peace knowing that Jesus is in charge.”

If you’re stuck at home with your family, what better time to wake and fall asleep to scripture.

During this time of uncertainty Abide is offering a 30-day free trial available at
