Prayer is an important aspect of any person’s life. A prayer request can help you to feel at peace if you’re struggling with something difficult in your life and it can also help you to feel closer to God. However, Jesus indicated in Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Due to this declaration from Jesus, countless Christians from all over the world make the time to gather together in an online prayer chain in the hopes that God will hear their special prayer intentions and requests.
We will print and place your prayer request on the Stone of Anointing; the place where Christ’ body was laid down after being removed from the crucifix and prepared for burial.
Why Develop a Prayer Chain Online
One of the leading reasons why so many people develop a prayer chain online is due to the fact that their life is busy. Whereas in the past they may have had more time to go and meet with their prayer group in person, with family or work responsibilities, they may find it all but impossible to find time to dedicate to meeting with other Christians in prayer. This doesn’t mean that you should remove special prayers for your life completely, however. When you take the time to develop a prayer chain online, you know that you’re still making connections with other Christian in your area to form other parts of the world. When your voices are joined in prayer, you know that God will always look kindly on your prayer requests.
