What is Beatimi?


Beatimi is an online platform connecting Christians across regions and time-zones in prayer. It's a place where spiritual warriors gather together to pray for each other and for the world. Beatimi is a place where we have the opportunity to make a difference in the world, in our own lives and the lives of others. We can do it by connecting online and praying together - maybe praying with someone who at this very moment needs encouragement or consolation, someone who suffers, who is afraid or lonely. Beatimi is a project by Abba Father Institute, a Catholic ministry & a non-profit organization located in San Diego, CA, USA.




Is Beatimi free for the users?


Yes, it's absolutely free for the users. Abba Father Institute is the sponsor of the entire infrastructure.

If you like our work you may consider a donation to this project to allow us to continue providing the free online services to all users.
