Okay, that seemed to work pretty well.
Just joined with a few other twitterers (tweeps?) for an online prayer time at churchtok.com (powered by tokbox.com). I called for a prayer tweetup 30 minutes prior, and a total of 6 joined in: 3 with webcam (@knightopia, @daveingland, me), 3 guest users with voice only. We didn’t banter around. We just shared prayer requests. We prayed. Done in 15 minutes. We had a little chatter afterward. That was it. That’s prayer, pure and simple.
I’m realizing that I’m more of a “try it and see what happens” kind of guy. So this worked. Will do it again, and possibly regularly, as we see people join in prayer in the weeks ahead.
Here’s what we’ll do: next Wednesday, February 11th at 7:17pm Pacific / 8:17pm Mountain / 9:17pm Central / 10:17pm Eastern, we’ll join in prayer at churchtok.com . So that we can hit the (virtual) ground running in prayer, I’ve setup this wiki (powered by Google Sites) where we can submit prayer requests. Add a comment or contact me to get access.
This is an open prayer meeting, and as long as the technology can accommodate the people who want to pray, we’ll pray there.
Aside: actually, anyone could call a spontaneous prayer tweetup and go to churchtok.com .. so there you go, it’s probably more useful as a prayer room than a break room
