The PrayerCenter Component provides users of a website with the capability to share their prayer concerns with others. Prayer concerns can be posted to the website, sent to members of the the prayer chain, and sent to the Spiritual director or pastor. Users can subscribe to be members of the prayer chain via online form.
Translations available in the following languages (others being developed):
CAPTCHA security image verification and email confirmation approval capabilities including new ReCaptcha support.
Community Builder integration.
JComments integration for prayer responses.
wish I could provide this module a better
review as it seems to have great potential. But, the submit prayer request
does not seem to work when enabling recaptha. It always complains about the
code entered is incorrect. There is also
a NOAUTH error that seems to loop and
then just stops (thankfully, I guess)
The other concern (sorry guys) is the Forum should just as well be nonexistent. You can run through the
forum and pretty quickly find out that a)
questions are almost older than dirt,
and b) there are very few of the
questions that have replies to them. And
in the cases where there are replies, it
is usually one or 2 of them, and most
are replies are pleas for assistance with
no solutions provided.
Finally, if you are going to publish a
product, then give it some support, even
if that support is going to "YOUR" forums
once a week and responding to requests that have not been answered by the
forum community. People will spend a
lot time trying to get a module to work
if it even looks like it is worth a grain
of salt, just to have to give up on it
and move on to something less desirable
only because there is very little to NO
support for that module. : (
I've emailed the arthur countless times and have never received a response. I would give this 5 stars, but I can't get it to work or correctly install, and support is non-existent.
I hate to look for other alternatives.
Any chance on creating a android/iphone app where once submitted from the app it would still send the confirmation to the admin and get stored in the DB and allow us to publish as if they sent it directly from the site?
Guys, you have done a very good job and May all the prayer requests that are made with this module carry a silent but surely answerable prayer for you! I highly recommend it for anyone seeking to add prayer feature to their website.
What I was wondering and would LOVE To see is a 1.6 version. I have several ministry sites that I currently develop and maintain and they have the desire to go to Joomla 1.6 but until we can either find a suitable alternative or Prayer Center comes out with a compatible version, we are kind of in waiting. Obviously for ministries the Prayer Center component is vital and appreciated! :)
This: "Prayer is the practice of the presence of God. It is the place where pride is abandoned, hope is lifted, and supplication is made. Prayer is the place of admitting our need, of adopting humility, and claiming dependence upon God. Prayer is the needful practice of the Christian. Prayer is the exercise of faith and hope. Prayer is the privilege of touching the heart of the Father through His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4:8
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:6-7
Father, in Your mercy, hear our prayers."
I haven't figured out where to edit this at. Make that a little easier to locate and I think you'll have a pretty amazing product there!
You will need to unzip the download file first. Within that zip file you will find the installation package as well as some instructional documentation. God bless!
It was a pleasure working with you Vicki. God bless!
