Full disclosure: I'm not an overly religious person, but I do believe in God. And the power of prayer. I need something really bad right now, and I feel like I need more than my own voice out there, flooding the heavens. I'll bet I'm not the only one out there that needs someone to put in a good word with God, so I got the idea for this swap. If you need a prayer, said on your behalf, sign up for this swap.

I think it'll work like this: when you sign up, add a comment about what you want people to pray for. If you want to keep it general, that's OK, God will know what we are praying about, don't you think? This is where we'll read, and put in our own happy thoughts/prayers/meditation/ for other people.

Then, when I assign partners, send a postcard (or letter, if you feel the need for more privacy) to your partner, asking for her (or him) to pray for you, and what for. You can be as detailed or general as you'd like. That's it. When you rate someone else's postcard, I think it'd be good if in the comment section, you let that person know you prayed their prayer. Then, ask them for help with YOUR prayer request, if you'd like.

So, this way we're all helping each other out, in as many ways as possible. If you feel your prayers were answered, wouldn't it be great to let us all know? Maybe with messages, or a general comment below? Or not. You know what you need.

This swap is for sincere people, who are going to actually take a moment to send a postcard, send a message, and send a prayer or two out there. That's it. Don't flake, or feel like you need to be overly religious. This isn't to convince people of anything--just to pray. Here's hoping it does us all some good.

I need to be able to actually obtain a house that is spacious, warm, happy, and good for my family and our health. I also need to have more faith.

My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for about 3 years now with no success. I think the biggest factor in this is weight I gained after getting married... so I would really appreciate prayer for both getting pregnant and losing weight.

I need prayer for my husband, Josh his job has been really hard lately and I think he is not appreciated for what he does there. I would like prayers for his situation at work to get better.

I am pre-diabetic and have HIGH triglycerides. I need to stick to a healthy diet, exercise and lose weight which will help both. I started out good, but the last three months I've lost my incentive. I would like prayer for the will power to take care of myself and for my health. Thanks.

This is a wonderful idea! I signed up immediately. I enjoy having someone pray for me and praying for others.

My prayer request is for my daughters - for their happiness. My older daughter wants a child so bad and has been unable to conceive. My younger daughter has been having relationship issues.

I sent up a prayer for everyone here.

Please pray for a young man we know who was recently in a very serious accident that he and his family will find the strength and resources they need to cope. Also, please pray for the safety, health and well-being of my children and yours. Thank you. I will pray for your intentions as well. Sue

What a wonderful and thoughtful swap idea. I have signed up and am looking forward to praying for my two partners, plus I will be praying for those individual requests mentioned here.

I have been unable to take my drivers license test for 4 years dispite having my permit. It wouldnt be a big deal in the long run if my parents didnt make it look like I dont have it because Im lazy. Without my license I cant get a job, or get to college. So Im headed on my 3rd year from graduation and all my family thinks Im just a lazy bum who wants to do nothing but sit on the couch. But I cry a lot because I have big dreams that a simple card prevents me from doing, due to my location. (I live 45 minutes from the nearest town/college) I need prayer that I can get a car so I can get someone to teach me to drive and that I can go to school, get a degree so I can start a REAL life and I wont look like a loser anymore or feel like a loser anymore.

I've started a job three weeks ago. It causes me great anxiety. I should be grateful I have a job during this economy, but I really feel anxious about the job/field I am working. Please pray that the anxiety lessens.

My "boyfriend" and I have been on/off for a while, currently off, and please pray that I figure out if this should be the end of it.. I've been doing a lot of thinking and praying, and my heart, gut, and mind are all leading me every which way...

My husband has COPD which is a breathing, respiratory condition. There is no cure and he is in the end stages of the disease. My only prayer is that his end is quick and he doesn't suffer but passes away in his sleep.

If I had more joy in my life, there would be more laughter and happiness for those I come in contact with. I don't dwell on the past, but I have lost two husbands and a son. My prayer is for a bubbling joy that overflows into my daily life.

Please pray for a young man named Chris, that he should be delivered from struggles with substance abuse.

My prayers go up for all the intentions here.

I am praying for all of you, and I think I'm kind of enjoying it! I hope that you are all finding some measure of peace, or resolution. I'll be assigning partners as soon as I can! :)

My sister is suffering from severe Chrone's Disease. Please pray to lessen her pain and suffering so she can be back to her normal self. Pray for my boyfriend's brother and sister-in-law who are struggling with addiction. They have 2 children a 1 year old and 2 year old, that need them more than anything. Please pray for me.. generally speaking that I find peace and happiness in my heart and mind with something that I've been struggling with for a while.

Please pray for my son he is 26. Although he we didnt got to church all his life but for most of it he says he doesnt think that Jesus is real. He has listened to a lot of junk on the internet about the bible and stuff that isnt true. I keep telling him that he needs to go by what the bible says and he says that it isnt true. I am sick to my stomach about this whole thing. At one point he said he was aspitual satanist but we when question him about why he thought he was he said he wasnt that it is yaga and stuff like that. this sight that he looked at sucks them in. I went and looked at it and at the bottom it says spiritual satanisem. the whole thing sounds like it is inocent until you read ad the bottom.We arew so scared for him. He is a wonderful person who is being swayed the wrong way by others.thank you for your prayers.

Also I am praying for all you you. I will print the list out as a reminder of your request. this was a great idea
