The Chronic Joy Prayer Pond is a safe place to request prayer – and #PrayItForward with Tender-Loving Prayer (TLP) is how you can lovingly pray for others.  There could be no greater catchphrase for prayer than TLP. Prayer can move mountains and usher in miracles. Through prayer, we discover that God is good even when we aren’t healed, the pain doesn’t abate, our situations don’t change, our child remains a prodigal, or our loved one dies. God is good all the time!

“Jesus persisted in heartfelt, humble prayer while surrendering to God’s will over His own. If Jesus modeled this while on earth, especially before the most challenging trial of His life, how much more should we be praying, particularly during seasons of difficulty?” (Nicole Furno)


God calls us to pray humbly and compassionately, growing in selflessness as we learn to sacrifice our time and energy for one another. This is intercessory prayer, a calling to pray for those we know, those we don’t know, those we love, and those who speak against or mistreat us. (Luke 6:27)

TLP is as quick as a few keystrokes. Leave your request, then #PrayItForward for someone else. When you click the “I PRAYED FOR THIS” button, the requester (at their discretion) will receive an email saying, “Someone just prayed for you!” Receiving this message is the very best kind of TLP.

As soon as you leave your request, you will receive an email saying, “Your Prayer Request Has Been Received.” That email includes a link to let us know when your prayer has been answered or to remove your request from the Prayer Pond.


Chronic illnessmental illnesschronic pain, or disability can deplete our spirits, causing us to feel purposeless, anxious, and alone. Sitting at the edge of a quiet pond, tossing a prayer into its depths, and watching the water ripple out toward the far shores is what happens when we request prayer and share praises. As a community of intercessory pray-ers, we lift one another before the Lord with TLP, blessing one precious life at a time.

How often do we hear, “Prayer is the least I can do,” when prayer is the absolute best we can do?

I prayed for this

Prayed for 103 times.


Everyone’s prayers have been deeply encouraging. I get the notices during some of the darkest moments and they buoy me up. Things got a bit better for a while, but now I’ve developed severe exhaustion and had to cancel a trip to visit my family. it’s scary to be so weak and still dependent on earning my own income, and it’s difficult to be physically alone at home. I’m grateful for ongoing prayer. What a wonderful community this ️
