Allow me to introduce you to the Prayer Room:
Please use this room to post prayer requests of praise, petition, and thanksgiving. Please do not address other users or carry on conversations.
Originally the idea was to have a place we can post links to pastoral questions so that they may be acknowledged without remaining on the site. Anyone can read the posts and it may soon be possible for authors to see their own deleted posts if they have a link. So the room could have a practical purpose (justify deleting pastoral advice questions quickly) and possibly a spiritual purpose as well (anyone who is interested may bring these questions before God in prayer).
However, there's no reason the room couldn't be used by anyone wishing to submit their petitions, praises, and thanksgivings. We must follow a few ground-rules, however:
Any chat message may be deleted by any ♦ moderator at any time for any reason.
The primary reason for deleting a message is that it contains something that might be construed as advice, gossip, gratuitous self-promotion, or anything that isn't a prayer request.
The experiment may end at any time and the room deleted for any reason up to and including "it's too much work to moderate". (Lack of interest may be more likely, however.)
What do you think?
