The single most powerful tool that a Christian possesses in his or her arsenal is prayer. The ability to speak your mind directly to our Lord and Father God. Although often misused for petty requests, real heartfelt and Spirit inspired prayer is deadly to the powers of darkness that have blanketed our world with darkness and evil. Jesus himself says "Where to or more have gathered in My name, there I will be in the midst of them." Matthew 18:20
In our world of on-demand information social media has become and integral part of our lives. Slowly but surely it has invaded our cultures indiscriminately. Everything gets shared with everybody, nearly instantly. It only makes sense in the natural progression of things that prayer would also find its place in the social-sphere. Praydoo.com is a website that aims to do just that. With a social network platform in mind, the founder of Praydoo.com, Gabriel Kish, has built a beautifully simplistic and free site where you can offer your prayer to the Lord while also allowing others to join you in your plea.
The creators wanted to allow the prayer requests to stand out so you will find no annoying banners or flashy graphics. Another feature that I found handy is the option to share the prayer to your own social groups, expanding the reach of the prayer so that potentially you could have thousands of people praying for you. Talk about powerful!
From the founder Gabriel Kish:
"We firmly believe that our website has an important role to play in bringing people closer to each other and to God" says the founder of the website. Sharing prayers with others is a way for many people to find relief. Just knowing that you are not alone with your troubles provides great comfort and strength in difficult times."
