Business Wire - Press Release
Spiritual Web Site Spreading Prayer Virus Worldwide
11.19.07, 10:09 AM ET

Humanity's most common universal expression has already spread to every corner of the globe. Now, one Web site is making certain it reaches those in need everywhere in between.

Using the power of prayer, iPrayToday.com is offering strength and comfort to people of all religions during their most difficult situations.

"We're trying to change the world one prayer at a time," said Paige Wheeler, CEO of iPrayToday.com "Not only is prayer priceless, it just so happens that it is free. What a paradox. Prayer is one of the most amazing tools we have - second only to good deeds."

The non-denominational prayer sanctuary allows anyone to submit prayer requests and provide support by responding to prayer needs. People on the receiving end of prayers get information once a day about those who prayed for their intentions. Visitors to iPrayToday.com can also send the gift of prayer to friends and family via e-mail, and they can remain anonymous, whether submitting prayers or answering requests.

"When you pray for people you don't know, or for situations of which you were not previously aware, you get a very powerful and gratifying feeling. Try it and you'll see," Wheeler said.

iPrayToday.com subscribers receive a new prayer daily via email alert, giving them an opportunity to assist a situation that is in desperate need of prayer. People are also invited to submit their own ideas for iPrayToday.com's worldwide prayer reminder. The daily prayer service is free and available at www.ipraytoday.com/signup.php.

Although iPrayToday.com was a Christian calling for Wheeler, she is adamant about not excluding anyone from receiving the benefits of prayer and getting involved with the spiritual community at iPrayToday.com.

"Not only is the site a great way for children to get involved with prayer, especially during the holidays, but it's also a practical site employers can offer to employees who are going through challenges during the work day," she added.

Increasing research supports the power of prayer in healing. Rather than citing others' studies on the power of prayer, Wheeler is planning to use the iPrayToday database to conduct her own studies.
