How to create a prayer wall page.
Create a page (Web Pages > Add New) then there are two ways to add the prayer wall:
- Short Code: [cd_prayer_wall]
- Widget: CD Prayer Wall
Using the [cd_prayer_wall] short code
To add the prayer list using the [cd_prayer_wall] short code edit the page using the page builder and add a text module to the page. Paste in this shortcode: [cd_prayer_wall]
You can add text above and below the shortcode as needed.
Using the CD Prayer Wall widget
To add the prayer list using the CD Prayer Wall widget edit the page with the page builder and look for the CD Prayer Wall widget in the widgets section. Drag it onto the page and drop it where you want it added on the page.
How does it work?
Visitors are able to add a prayer request from your prayer wall page. When a new prayer request is added the visitor is sent an email with a message (subject and message set on the prayer settings page) with a message and a link to mark the prayer answered and another to delete the prayer request. Another email is sent to the admin email address (set on the prayer settings page) with the prayer request details and a link to approve or trash the prayer request.
Once approved the prayer request will be shared based on the visitors wishes.
- Share Online – The prayer request will show on the prayer wall and the name will show.
- Share Online Anonymously – The prayer request will show on the prayer wall but the name will be “Anonymous”.
- DO NOT Share Online – The prayer request will not show on the prayer wall at all.
Visitors to the prayer wall are able to pray then click the “I prayed for this” button. When that button is clicked the prayer count goes up, if the person that posted the prayer request put in their email address and select to be notified when someone prays they will get an uplifting email telling them someone has prayed for them. The visitor that prayed will get a thank you for praying message and will get that message until the number of hours set in “Pray again hours” on the prayer settings page has past.
The prayer request will remain on the prayer wall until removed by the user or by the admin.
