Prayer Blaster -- Submit Your Prayer Requests to Many Prayer Chains

I will make notes to help you navigate in advance on some of these forms. Most of these have anonymous forms in which you type in your prayer request. A few of these have links that you click on which will come up with an e-mail form that you fill out. A few require your name, address and e-mail addresses, or only allow you to add a very short request. The best ones allow others to see the prayer requests, so visitors can pray for all requests given.

Some Thoughts on Prayer

If God answers prayer, and if the relationship to God is the reason why we are created and are made to live through all our joys and struggles, then praying for ourselves and others is one of the most important things in life. How we accept God's response to prayer, how we value it, what kind of gratitude we have towards it, is a part of its reality. We can ask, God can respond miraculously, but if we are weak and doubt we can destroy a part of the response. The answer to prayer seems to continue through a stage of our gratitude for it over time for it to fully manifest.

When we pray, do we fully imagine the need totally met? Do we hope one hundred percent that the prayer will be answered graciously by God, and that people will be healed one hundred percent? When we ask for prayer for ourselves, do we accept an 80% healing and think that this is good enough, or do we continue to pray until we are fully healed and abundantly healthy? Do we learn to change our behavior so that we can stay healthy? That means, of course, eating well, exercising, relaxing muscles, deep breathing, fresh air, forgiveness, and positive, loving, and joyful thoughts. I am not saying that every prayer for healing will be answered by God healing that person. I am only writing about helping the intention of the one doing the praying. This is something I myself have to work on so I wonder if others also need help with this.

If prayer can change a person's life and even the world, then we should study prayer and pray. I think we limit what God can do in the world by how we limit what we pray for and the frequency in which we pray. God often only works in our world "by permission" and by having things "pointed out" to Him.
