How to Add Prayers or Request for a Prayer

Dear Friend,

We have configured this template to enable anyone to post their prayers and prayer requests to this blog and even leave comments, suggestions.

You will notice that there is a "comment" link at the bottom of each post that enables you to do just that.

However, to make things even more convenient for everyone, we decided to dedicate specific pages as central repositories for prayers and prayer requests.

Of course, you are still free to add your comments, suggestions and questions to each post, but the dedicated pages will enable you to more easily access the prayers and prayer requests threads.

How do I share a prayer or post a prayer request?
  1. If you wish to post a prayer go to Share A Prayer page. To request for prayers, go to Prayer Requests.
  2. Scroll down and click on the comments link at the bottom of the post.
  3. A new browser will open up that provides a form where you can type in your prayers.
  4. Type in your prayer. Then click preview. If you're happy with the way it looks then click on to "Login and Publish" button.

If you wish to add another prayer, and click on the "comment" link again and repeat the process outlined above.

How can I format the text?

If you wish to use HTML tags to format your text, you are most certainly welcome to do so. If you're familiar with HTML, then go for it! On the other hand, if you are still a newbie (just like us), then we suggest that you familiarize yourself with the simple HTML tags. For a quick tutorial on HTML, you can go to HTML goodies. This page shows you how to use bold or italics tags.

How can I add pictures or audio files to my comments?

We haven't quite figured out how to enable posters to add their own pictures or embed an MP3 file within the comments box yet, but we're in the process of looking for ways to address this. (If anyone has any idea, please feel free to post your comments here).

So in the meantime, if you wish to add pictures, feel free to email the image to us and we'll be more than happy to upload them for you.

If you wish us to do special formatting for you, just let us know.

What types of prayers can I post?

You are free to post any type of religious prayer on Share A Prayer section. Feel free to give a background on the prayer -- it's origins, if known to you, or simply how it has made an impact on your life.

How can I make prayer requests?

Requesting for a prayer is simple. Simply go to Request For a Prayer section. Type in any petition/s you may have -- e.g. guidance in an upcoming exam, job interviews, good health, recovery from illness, discernment, financial blessings, birthdays, everyday need -- anything at all. Be as specific as possible -- to the extent that you're comfortable sharing details.

We encourage you to also pray for other people's intentions. It's one way of 'giving.' And as you know, the more you 'give,' the more benefits you 'receive.' That is a universal principle and is key to attracting blessings in your life.

Can I email the post to my friends?

Absolutely! Just click on the envelop icon beside the comment link. This will lead you to a form where you can fill in your friends' email address and a short message that will introduce the post.

Use this function to invite your friends to view your prayers, prayer requests and to encourage them to write their own comments.

If you have any other questions that we have not addressed, please feel free to contact us.

All the best to you,

Lito & Ann

Please, I ask that we PRAY for positive results this morning for my mother. She was told that she had cancer and had 4 to 6 months to live. First tests weren't done appropriatlly and we are hoping that they made a mistake. We've prayed as a family, and ask anyone else out there to pray that GOD grants us her health. Thank YOU!
