4 In 10 Protestant Churches Have Prayer Button On Their Websites

01.21.11 |

Four in every ten Protestant churches in the US  are inviting their members to pray online. Here's how it works. The churches invite people to post pleas to the Lord on the main church site so volunteers and staff can pray. It's the latest cyberspin on religious life. Before this, the most recent technical update is for prayer chains to get passed through email accounts. Some churches even have live chat buttons on their site for people to pray by typing with the person. The survery was done by Lifeway Research, which surveyed 1,000 churches on their use of technology.
