Lets an organization share, update, and manage prayer requests via their website.

Frontend (read anonymous) users can submit requests via an embeddable prayer form using the shortcode [prayer_form]. They can also click a “pray” button that lets the original poster know their request has been prayed for by someone else. Each request displays a count of how many times it has been prayed for. All requests can be categorized and tagged like a post.

Authorized users can track and manage prayer requests via a custom admin page. They can approve requests, mark them as answered as well as look at several other pieces of information stored with each request like geolocation data (displayable on a frontend map).

This plugin also provides JSON feeds for other services to consume and requires the WP REST API ( be installed and activated first. You can access the Feeds through the Prayer admin menu.


Download echo into your /wp-content/plugins directory. Navigate to Plugins and activate Prayer. Upon activation, the plugin will create a new passwordless user named Prayer to associate frontend submissions with.

Would like to know when its working again. but till then, sticking away from this
