Dear brothers and sisters,
I am trying to pray for you all, and especially for the requests that you make here. But I have found it hard to keep track of them all. So to help me, and to hopefully encourage many other Coptic Orthodox to pray more regularly for others, I have developed a new website called http://www.copticprayernetwork.org
The idea of the site is that people can place their prayer requests there (using initials rather than names to keep the request confidential), and others can visit the site and see the requests, or they can become members (you have to be a member to add a prayer request) and have whatever number of prayer requests they choose randomly sent to them once a day. Or they can choose to have no prayer requests sent to them, either for a time, or for ever.
It is quite simple in functionality, but it means that I can have a list of current requests, and also I hope others will want to receive a random selection of requests (from 0 to 15) each day and also pray for them.
All requests will be moderated by myself so that I can remove all identifiers such as names, and the site will just use initials. The identity of the person posting the request is never made known. That is not the idea. It is the request itself which matters. Requests will expire after 2 weeks, and can be deleted by the registered user who has added them.
My first targets are i. to enable myself to pray more effectively, and ii. to try to find 100 other people who will become members of the site and pray for the needs of others as they are identified.
Of course there may be some bugs, so let me know if you find them.
