Here's how to add a prayer petition to your community site. Begin by logging in to your church community site and navigating to the Petitions page. In the heading of the petitions section of the page you'll see the "add prayer" article link.
(Note that you may need to have been granted permission by your Community Manager. If you don't see the link you'll need to contact your Community Manager or request help through the support site.)
In the dialog box that opens after clicking the add prayer link you have several fields that need completed in order to properly display and share your prayer request.
Enter a title for your prayer request.
Select a category by clicking the check box next to the category that best describes your type of petition
Enter the text of the petition in the Article details box.
Enter tags for your petition or select Add Existing Tags then click the ones most appropriate.
Publish and Expire Date
Enter the published and expired date. By default the published date is today's date. You can set the expired date for whatever date you desire.
Publish or Save as Draft
You can publish your petition immediately by clicking the Save Article button. If you're not ready, you can save it as a draft and come back latter by clicking the Draft check box then clicking the Save button.
If your Community Manager has set the site to Moderated then the petition must be approved first before being published. However if not Moderated then the petition will be displayed to the community immediately. Also your petition will be added to the email published by your community if the Community Manager has set up the Daily/Weekly Prayer Digest email.
Change/Edit, Unpublish or Delete
After publishing you can later edit, delete or change the petition to draft by clicking the Edit Prayer link in the heading. See the other Help Guides on these topics.
