I believe that the forums would be better served by having a separate folder for prayer requests. Some of them tend to be temporal in nature as well.
This would be better than having thread started asking for prayers in the Spiritual forum, where prayer is discussed, in Family Life, where praying as a family or prayer in our lifes is discussed, or in any other existing forum.
Just my :twocents:
P.S. I am not advocating stopping the practice of adding a related prayer to a discussion in any forum. I feel this is a very appropriate and Catholic action.
