  • I do all 3. I say a quick prayer that very moment. Then when I have peace and quiet I say a longer more detailed prayer for everyone that I can think of, and I continue to check in to see how everything is going and to offer more prayers, someone to talk to, or whatever that person may need. ;)

  • just what the other ladies said..and if the prayer request is anon to us, it isn't to God. :))

  • I agree, I do a quick prayer, and I will also keep praying for people. Though I have to admit, there are some prayer requests that weigh more heavily on my heart and I find myself praying more for them than I do other prayer requests.

    But, just as one of the pp's said, whether or not I know the name of the person, God does! Besides, even if, say, I were to post a prayer request here and didn't post anon, all you (or anyone else here) would know is that Sailorwifenmom has a need for prayer - you don't know who I REALLY am, what my real name is - but yet, God does. Same with the anon prayer requests :-)

    I just say "the person on cafemom who asked for prayers about __" Or, my friend from church whose sister back home is having trouble... or whatever the request is.

  • The latter but not definitely, personally speaking.

  • I say a quick prayer right then and then add them to my prayer list and continue praying for them.
