Prayer Requests is a great way to connect with other members of your church and be praying for one another.
Viewing prayer requests
To view prayer requests, go to Church > Prayer Requests. This will bring you to the main Prayer Requests screen, which shows you prayer requests submitted in the last 30 days in order from newest to oldest. To view a specific prayer request, tap the menu item to see the full request and comments section.
Users may leave comments to encourage and show support for their fellow church members.
Adding a comment
To add a comment, type in the box that says "Enter your comment..." and tap the Send button.
Editing a comment
If you need to modify a comment, you can do so by tapping the ellipsis icon next to your comment. Tap "Edit" on the popup box, edit the prayer, and hit the check mark in the top right corner to confirm the changes.
Deleting a comment
If you need to delete a comment, you can do so by tapping the ellipsis icon next to your comment. Tap "Delete" on the popup box, and your comment will be removed.
Adding a prayer request
To add a prayer request, tap the "plus" icon in the top right corner on the main Prayer Requests screen. Enter a title (or short description) for your prayer and enter your full prayer request in the box below. Choose the appropriate privacy options using the checkboxes below. The privacy options are as follows:
- Restrict to church staff - if you would like your prayer request to go directly to your church staff and wish for it to not be public in the app, check this box.
- Anonymous - if you would like your prayer request to show as "anonymous" and not contain any information about who submitted it, check this box.
Note that you may check both boxes (for it to be anonymous and restricted to church staff) or none of the boxes (a standard public prayer request with your name visible). Public prayer requests must be approved by your church staff. Because of this, a public prayer won't immediately be visible right after it is submitted.
Deleting a prayer request
In the case that you would like to delete a prayer request, tap your prayer from the main Prayer Requests screen and tap the ellipsis icon next to the text. Tap "Delete" on the popup prompt, and your prayer request will be deleted.
If you have notifications enabled, you will receive a push notification each time a new public prayer request is posted. You can control the notification setting by going to Profile > Notification Preferences and toggling "Prayer Notifications" on or off. Please make sure to save your preferences by tapping the check mark in the top right corner.
