Change or not _ Next Prayer thread

Just curious to know if you like the prayer thread the way it been running or would you like to see some changes.

I know some doesn't have the time to come in on a daily basis to see new request but still wants to be part of this team. Others just read and not post due for whatever reason it is.
Soon the old thread will be closing where we can start a new thread, but before doing so I was just curious to know if you like to see changes or not.

I came up with a idea that you might like and help those that likes to keep up with the prayer request but gets lost in the shuffle of it. F irst I would like to know your opinion to know if we should change it or not.

so I would appreciate it if you would cast your vote and opinion about it.

which way would you like to see it
1) leave it the way it been
2) change it to prayers only
3 )change it to prayers and updates only
4) it doesn't matter to me

this is the time to vote if you want to see changes or not. I apprecaite everyone that does give thier opinion.

Prayers are very important, and I'm thankful for all the ones that does keep everyone in thier prayers. but just curious to know if we need to change or not.

Ps. of course if we do change, we would have a chit chat thread, to vent, talk, share, with one another on.. but keep a thread just for prayers..

I hope I've explain it good enought for you to understand...

If you have any comments, suggestions, feel free to share it with us..

I really don't know what to say. I came back because of the way it was which is the way it IS currently. This is what I needed and I have been blessed ever since. But I guess if it HAS to be changed, then I can do something else. It has been such an encouragement for so many. Guess what I am trying to say is that I do not see any need to change.

God has been with us in the prayer request thread and He has blessed in so many ways. I say let's not fix what is not broken.

I like it in one thread also. I don't always get to all threads and adding one more means that I might not be able to post as much.

However you think is best is fine with me. I will visit whenever I get time anyway, but prayers always go to everyone here if I have posted here or not. I generally read through them twice a week or more and jot them down at home in my journal, then go from there. I'll go with the flow!

I must have missed something. Why did you want to change it? I thought it was fine the way it is.

I am with Lynette and Robin..I like it the way it is..BUT if you do change it, will there be a thread where we can still ask for prayers and send our Praises up when they are received..and keep the ones who are praying aware of the way their/our prayers are answered?
We already have a thread that is only for prayers. I read that one daily and have also posted a prayer or two on it...
Whatever you decide I will still be there offering prayers where needed.

bar_bar It doesnt matter to me... sometimes it is harderd to keep up with if they were one to list prayers and updates , then one for chit chat, prayers that we say for the ones in need , expressions we may want to make may be easier. As you all know I add each and everyone to our church list and we lift them up to God in out services, and sometimes when I dont recieve the updates in my inbox, well I have to go back and reread them all. It's up to the others though just voicing my opinion. Hey I'll be here till the Lord comes back so I'll be happy with whatever u all decide. TY

I guess it would make it easier for people if the prayer requests were to be listed on one thread.

And The actual prayers and concerns and praises could be on another. That way we wouldn't have to sift through dozens of posts to find out who needs prayers.

But whatever is decided, I'll go along with. I'm just happy there IS a prayer thread here and so many caring people are on it.

After re reading this to see which way I voted, I think I chickened out and said "anything you want to do, do it". lol
