Christians: If someone asks you to pray for them, do you do it immediately, later, or never?

Was this poll meant for only Christians? As in did you target it? I'm seeing it when labeled as agnostic. No big deal just wanting to know if it's a bug or not with the app :)

No worries. :) It might have just been a glitch since I can no longer see the poll after refreshing the list today. Weird.

"Later" and "Never" don't belong together. I don't fall to my knees immediately, but I do pray for others.

I was originally going to just do now or later, but I was afraid that there would be complaints from those who just say they will, but don't.

I do it immediately. Like on Tom's weekly prayer poll I will pray after I read it. If its an urgent prayer for loved one I pray non stop.

Both. If i feel it needs to be done immediately, then I do it immediately. If not, I wait till I'm alone. I really don't like to pray in front of people.

I asked, because when someone asks on FB, I stop & say a quick prayer. Same on here. I know most of friends do the same on FB. I am just curious if everyone does.

how did you upgrade? what does it allow you to do besides targeted polls?

I didn't. I don't have the money, but another SOH user did it for me anonymously. You can do it via your profile or through the website. There are multiple levels. Upgrades include things like no ads, more people can answer your polls before they

This is my first targeted poll, since my friend upgraded me. I hope it works. If it didn't, advice.

Sometimes a friend will ask for prayers that are time specific, so by the time I say my bedtime prayers, it's over. Also, sometimes they have updated me before I go to bad & things have changed. I will usually include a thank you in my nightly

if it's "now" though, would something change in that immediate 5 minutes?

I almost always pray now. It's the later part that depends for me.

Sometimes I want to devote more time to a specific prayer and wait till later. Or continually over time
