Looking for a new way to pray for your local community? Use this guide to meet and pray for new people!

Updated over a week ago

Gloo's prayer feature makes capturing requests and responding to them a seamless and meaningful experience for your people. Why not take that beyond your walls and into the greater community?

Here's how to do it step by step!

Create a flyer with an SMS QR Code

  1. Navigate to the Messaging tab and click on the QR Code Maker.

  2. Enter the text "Pray for" into the generator. Then click Download to save the image of the QR code.

  3. Design and print a flyer like this one with your QR code included.

  4. It's that easy! Whenever anyone uses their phone to scan that QR code, it will automatically open up their texting app, fill in your Gloo phone number, as well as the text "Pray for". The person simply types in their prayer request and hits send!

Distribute this flyer in your community

These flyers can go anywhere! Here's a few ideas:

  • Your local hospital or homeless shelter or college campus.

  • Placed on cars in a parking lot.

  • Given to your congregants to distribute to their neighbors.

Pray for and respond to the requests

  1. Respond to the prayer requests! Go to Messaging> Prayers to see everyone who's submitted a prayer request. If you click the Mark as Prayed icon, you'll be able to send back a default response you can configure in your Customizations, or a completely custom message.

  2. Optional: Encourage people to extend an invitation to further connection in their response.
