Hurting people are everywhere – in our congregations, in our communities, and in our world. When someone gets tragic news, is heading into surgery, has a loved one pass away, or is even at the end of their rope, they not only need prayer…they need to know they’re not alone.
In a moment of urgency, being able to respond to prayer needs in a quick, tangible way can make all the difference. It might even save someone’s life.
Unfortunately, most churches’ prayer ministries are not set up to respond to these type of prayer needs in a felt way. Prayer staff and volunteers are charged with collecting prayer requests from multiple sources, manually tracking and recording them, and manually distributing them for prayer. It’s time-consuming and often burdensome.
Being involved in churches, this was something my wife, Amy, and I witnessed: busy and overwhelmed staff and volunteers, a congregation that was not engaged with prayer, and hurting people whose urgent needs were often missed or not responded to in a tangible way.
I knew there had to be a better way. So, I took my decades of experience in software development for secular corporations and built a system to make prayer easier to manage and more accessible to staff, volunteers, and congregants.
That’s how the idea behind PrayerLoft was born.
Today, PrayerLoft is an online tool that makes it easy for any church to manage its prayer ministry and connect with those in need of prayer.
With no technical knowledge required, you can set your PrayerLoft site up in seconds (we’ll even let you try it for free for 30 days) and expand the reach of your prayer ministry by fostering a culture of prayer.
Our mission is to see hope spread and people’s lives transformed, and I hope that PrayerLoft is a blessing to your church or ministry.
