Collect prayer requests from your congregation
Instead of individually reaching out to members or waiting until the following sermon, send a single text or voice broadcast and instantly reach everyone in your congregation. Using a mass texting service to share prayer requests breaks the barriers of not being physically together and creates community.
Sharing prayer requests with your congregation this way can be a powerful way to connect with others and experience the support and comfort that comes from being part of a community of faith.
Here are some good use cases:
Ask your congregation for prayer requests weekly
Create a prayer chain
Send out regular prayer reminders

5 Best practices for sharing a prayer request
Respect the privacy of your members
It's important to respect the privacy of those who have shared prayer requests. Be careful not to share too much personal information or details about a member's situation without their permission.
Consider the right time and setting to share prayer requests with the congregation. For example, it may be more appropriate to share a prayer request with a smaller group before sharing it with the congregation. Sometimes, the member may request that you only share their prayer request with a small group.
Keep it concise
When sharing a prayer request with the congregation, keep it concise and to the point. Provide enough information for people to pray specifically, but don't go into too much detail.
When sharing a prayer request with the congregation, be sure to encourage people to pray. Consider providing specific prayers or guidance on how to pray for the person or situation in need.
After sharing a prayer request with the congregation, be sure to follow up with the person or family to let them know that people are praying or have prayed for them. This can be a meaningful way to show support and let them know they are not alone.
