Every Friday is my day to keep an eye on the The Upper Room Prayer Center’s prayer wall. The Prayer Center receives 800 calls a day on a phone line staffed by volunteers who pray with callers. Then many, many more submit their prayers on the website to be prayed for by prayer groups around the world. Some of the prayers post to the public prayer wall and are the center of an online prayer community.
On Fridays, I read each prayer that is posted and respond to any prayers which might need immediate attention. For instance, if someone is feeling suicidal, we reach out with a list of resources for them.
