telicat77: Prayer Blaster -- Submit Your Prayer Requests to Many Prayer Chains

New: Working Phone Prayer Telephone Lines!

I will make notes to help you navigate in advance on some of these forms. Most of these have anonymous forms in which you type in your prayer request. A few of these have links that you click on which will come up with an e-mail form that you fill out. A few require your name, address and e-mail addresses, or only allow you to add a very short request. The best ones allow others to see the prayer requests, so visitors can pray for all requests given.

Prayer Request.com -- A very good site that allows several users to post back and forth to each other. A bit like a Facebook for prayer.
Healingscripture.com -- Submit your own prayers or pray for others.
PrayerForYou.Net - International Prayer Network
God's Healing Hands Ministry -- They have the interactive clicking that shows how many prayed. Guideposts took this feature off their site.
Faith Prayers.org Prayer Line -- Submit your own prayers online and also has a phone line. They accept people to pray on their line from many deonominations.
Brooklyn Tabernacle -- Submit your own prayers and can read requests to pray for others. Also has a phone prayer line.
Assemblies of God National Prayer Center
Greater Grace World Outreach Prayer Request Page -- A site that lists other's requests online.
Poor Clare Sisters -- From their website: "It is our joy to join with you in prayer and to present your needs to our loving God"
Franciscan Friars -- Has articles on prayer as well as a very simple to fill out prayer request form.
Monastery of the Holy Spirit
American Catholic | Submit Prayer Intentions -- Seems to go to the same website as above.
Benedictine Contemplative Nuns
Upper Room Ministries | Living Prayer Center -- They changed their prayer wall and now it has no function except to list the pray request.
Archdiocese of St. Louis: Prayer Requests
Praying Church Home Page.
Greater Grace Prayer Chain -- Also has a section that lists other's prayers but one needs a special newsgroup reader for it.
A Prayer Request Ministry -- Looks like it is more of a private church's list.
Flame Ministries A Catholic oriented prayer ministry with Zoom meetings.
Guideposts/crosswalk.com -- It looks like they now also have a prayer app.
Worldprayerteam.com -- Has a frequented area where you can pray for other's needs. It notes each person who say they pray, so you can see how much each need was prayed for.
Praywithme.com -- A good site where you can pray for other's needs. It allows each person to leave a note who pray.
CBN -- Has a 1-800 prayer request line. A live site that has an instant feed and many others' pray for the requests.


New: Working Phone Prayer Telephone Lines!

Some prayer lines on the most popular Google search pages for "24 7 prayer telephone number" do not work. Even some of the biggest TV ministries that advertise themselves having a prayer line only play a recorded message. Most on this list will always get you a live person, but a couple even on this list may be hit or miss. I put the ones that are the most active the most near the top.

Some Thoughts on Prayer

If God answers prayer, and if the relationship to God is the reason why we are created and are made to live through all our joys and struggles, then praying for ourselves and others is one of the most important things in life. How we accept God's response to prayer, how we value it, what kind of gratitude we have towards it, is a part of its reality. We can ask, God can respond miraculously, but if we are weak and doubt we can destroy a part of the response. The answer to prayer seems to continue through a stage of our gratitude for it over time for it to fully manifest.

When we pray, do we fully imagine the need totally met? Do we hope one hundred percent that the prayer will be answered graciously by God, and that people will be healed one hundred percent? When we ask for prayer for ourselves, do we accept an 80% healing and think that this is good enough, or do we continue to pray until we are fully healed and abundantly healthy? Do we learn to change our behavior so that we can stay healthy? That means, of course, eating well, exercising, relaxing muscles, deep breathing, fresh air, forgiveness, and positive, loving, and joyful thoughts. I am not saying that every prayer for healing will be answered by God healing that person. I am only writing about helping the intention of the one doing the praying. This is something I myself have to work on so I wonder if others also need help with this.

If prayer can change a person's life and even the world, then we should study prayer and pray. I think we limit what God can do in the world by how we limit what we pray for and the frequency in which we pray. God often only works in our world "by permission" and by having things "pointed out" to Him.

telicat77: “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
2 Corinthians 3:17

The Garden of Eden tells us to not use our own judgements of good and evil but only God's. Yet, both Pharisees from the bible and modern legalistic Christians cannot live in God's grace but cast heavy burdens on others while they at the same time sin just as bad. Jesus taught us what to focus on in the Gospels.

found lamb: For me, the main focus of the Bible are the Miracles, from God creating the Heavens and the earth in Genesis to Jesus coming back in clouds with all the Heavenly Angels found in the Gospels and The Book of Revelation.

Number two is the moral guideline we are given from God via Moses on Mount Sinai and from the words of Jesus in the Gospels.

It is always important to remember the Bible is not just a book, but the the actual actions of God and these actions very often take the form of Miracles!!!

telicat77: Sample Recovery International Tools
(this is not a drug abuse recovery group, its a mental health one)

Treat mental health as a business and not as a game.
Humor is our best friend, temper is our worst enemy.
If you can’t change a situation, you can change your attitude towards it.
Be self-led, not symptom-led.
Nervous symptoms and sensations are distressing but not dangerous.
Temper is, among other things, blindness to the other side of the story.
Comfort is a want, not a need.
There is no right or wrong in the trivialities of every day life.
Calm begets calm, temper begets temper.
Don’t take our own dear selves too seriously.
Feelings should be expressed and temper suppressed.
Helplessness is not hopelessness.
Some people have a passion for self-distrust.
Temper maintains and intensifies symptoms.
Do things in part acts.
Endorse yourself for the effort, not only for the performance.
Have the courage to make a mistake.
Feelings are not facts.
Do the things you fear and hate to do.
Fear is a belief—beliefs can be changed.
Every act of self-control leads to a sense of self-respect.

telicat77: Media Addiction

We view media addiction as an illness similar to alcoholism. Like drugs and alcohol, media addiction is both a physical and mental dis-ease. Here are the reasons we believe this.

Media changes and destabilizes the brain. The overuse of media destabilizes the prefrontal area of our brains. This is the area responsible for remembering details, planning, and prioritizing tasks. When we compulsively use media, our frontal lobes go "offline," weakening our ability to stop using media when we need to move on or go to bed.

Over time a mental obsession develops. After periods of extreme overuse of media, we eventually develop an "obsession of the mind." An obsession of the mind is an idea that overcomes all other ideas to the contrary. It doesn't make any difference how badly we want to stop using media, the obsession of the mind will become so strong that it will overcome any ideas to try to stop or stay away from media. Our minds actually lead us to believe it's okay to use our media, even after a huge blackout binge. Each time we get on our alcoholic media we trigger this mental obsession and we can't stop.


Media also affects the pleasure center of the brain triggering a release of dopamine—Like drug addiction, more and more media is needed to induce the same pleasurable dopamine hit, eventually creating a dependency. Therefore, we see media as a mind-altering and mood-altering drug. Media becomes our dopamine high or our dope.



Because of the mental obsession, the brain-numbing response to media, and the chemical response to media, we have both a mental and physical craving for media and a mental and physical intolerance much like alcohol and drugs. We can't safely use media because of the body allergy and dopamine high, and we can't stay sober because of our mental obsession, therefore, we believe that we have become absolutely powerless over addictive forms of media.



Doctor Silkworth in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous observed this same phenomenon in his alcoholic patients. We have found, word for word, that the same holds true for the real media addict. He writes back in 1936: "Men and women drink (use media) essentially because they like the effect produced by alcohol (media). The sensation is so elusive that, while they admit it is injurious, they cannot after a time differentiate the true from the false. To them, their alcoholic (media) life seems the only normal one. They are restless, irritable, and discontented unless they can again experience the sense of ease and comfort that comes at once by taking a few drinks (getting on their media)—drinks (media) that they see others taking with impunity. After they have succumbed to the desire again, as so many do, and the phenomenon of craving develops, they pass through the well-known stages of a spree, emerging remorseful, with a firm resolution not to drink again. This is repeated over and over, and unless this person can experience an entire psychic change there is very little hope of recovery.”

Recovery is transforming mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual states of being, which we refer to as having a psyche change. We create this psychic change by sincerely and consistently working the 12 Steps and the 12 Tools of MAA.

The Signs and Symptoms of Media Addiction

Dissatisfaction with everyday life—We depend on media as a way to avoid emotional discomfort, boredom, pain, and problems. Media has become our main source of relief, reward, relaxation, recreation, and relationships.

Mental obsession—We have a fear of missing out so we want our media with us at all times. We are preoccupied with what's trending in the news and social media. We lose ourselves in gossip, too much information, and the absorption of negative media, all of which result in constant unrest and agitation.

Depression, shame, and hopelessness—We feel depressed, shameful, and guilty about the amount or type of media we are consuming. We want to stop, but we don't believe we can live without our media dependency. This hopelessness has caused some of us to have suicidal thoughts or prolonged periods of depression and anxiety.

Compare and despair—We compare ourselves with what we see in magazines, films, TV, and social media. We try to create a persona that other people will admire, but end up feeling despair when we can't live up to those ideals. We are compelled to follow seemingly perfect people on social media even though we know it repeatedly makes us feel inferior.

Isolation—We prefer to be alone with our media rather than socialize. When we are with other people, we often become distracted by our devices. Isolation causes us to avoid those activities in life that used to bring us joy and connection.

Fantasizing—Rather than having meaningful relationships with real people, we turn to media to satisfy our need for romance, intimacy, and sexual fantasy. We end up feeling a deeper loss of intimacy with others which leads to more deprivation and loneliness than before.

Risky behavior—We will endanger our health, life, or someone else's life to get our media fix. We may drive while sending text messages, overeat while bingeing on TV, or deprive ourselves of sleep while using all forms of media.

Time irreverence—Time is the only commodity we can never get back. When grazing or bingeing on media, we lose track of time and forget what is truly important in our lives. Media takes priority over
everyone and everything.

Avoiding our life's purpose—We abandon creative endeavors, intellectual pursuits, and prioritization of our goals because we focus on passive media consumption instead. We jeopardize our income, education, careers, and overall success by procrastinating and repeatedly using media during study and work hours. We lose faith in ourselves and hope for the future.

Disconnection from our bodies and nature—We become detached from our body and do not fully enjoy all of our senses. We fail to meet our body’s basic needs for rest, sleep, exercise, and good nutrition. We hide indoors with media while avoiding the nourishment and beauty of the natural world.

Physical ailments—With prolonged media usage we experience backaches, neck pain, headaches, disturbances in sleep, digestive issues, carpal tunnel syndrome, and vision problems.

Withdrawal symptoms—When we stop using our addictive media, we experience withdrawal and detoxification symptoms. Any time we give in to our compulsion to use our addictive media, we reignite the “craving” and find it increasingly more difficult to stop again.
