    When you first arrive at this site, you are first asked to create an account before you are allowed to do anything else.

    Forget that you need urgent prayer now!

    So, ok … not the worse of sins, so I proceeded to create an account, heeding their tagline: “An Online Christian Community that Cares”, although I wonder why there are no prayers of others listed anywhere on the site.
    I then proceed to submit my prayer request.


    The site then asks you, “How important is your request”? Obviously, most will pick, “Very Important” or they wouldn’t be there in the first place.
    As soon as you pick any option at this point, the form then pops up a new question:

    How much would you like to offer with your request?
    Nothing $7 $15 $50
    OK. Let’s choose “Nothing”.
    Here comes the good part … Then this little part appears:
    Are you sure you do not want to offer anything? God finds ways to punish the unfaithful!

    (they too put that in bold and in Red)

    WTF!!!

    and now after unsubscribing every day since the 19th of October ( as i get daily fund requests with hinted threats of damnation for not doing so )

    i'm of a mind to have this domain taken down

    i think its a scam

    this morning i get this

    “Pastor John Carlson” suggests you should donate depending on the urgency of your need, asking for as much as $400 for a “Divine Answer”.

    i give to all sorts of places and people for lot's of things , but being charged to place a prayer and to be harrassed with hints i'll be damned if i dont pay especially when i cancelled it all without lodging the prayer ..

    would it be wrong for me to bust this up ??

    You know God answers all your prayers, it's just that most of the time the answer is no.

    Actually God's been pretty Good in answering prayers to me mainly yes , but i generally aint praying for myself ,

    do you think we could have fought all this gun control and mosque building here and won like we have without Him ? no way ..

    He's brought me the folks needed to win , put a fire in the heart of many more and yes we are winning some battles , just the past few months there been a huge deluge in horrid junk our government is pushing ..

    so i put prayers for my nation , ( i pray for the USA too) to be stong and resist this evil every place i can , as i've seen too many prayers answered to not beleive in it all

    heck i'd not be here except for Prayer

    but this .. seems to be a few places like this now

    even found one run by WBC yes THEM...

    along the way in this fight i learned how to get sites shut down

    mainly spamming sites and pro jihad sites so far but this , i think these folks need a wake up too , but going "Christians" well i'm sorta reticent about that and why i am asking

    now i am sure its a scam , this joker is also the clown who makes you a ordained minister for a few bucks , no questions asked

    http://www.christianprayercenter.com/ministers.html

    this is what was posted by one nutjob and was still issued a ticket that stated he's a ordained minister

    I am anarchist. I advocate for a stateless society. I'm also an outspoken atheist secularist. I'm a vegan for ethical reasons. I am vehemently anti-racist, humanist and anarcho-socialist. I enjoy music, playing guitar, drawing and a good dark beer.

    i guess only money matters to some ...

    The only example we have of Christ using physical force is when He entered the temple in Jerusalem and threw out the moneychangers. There was an area of tables and benches where merchants were selling doves and, we can assume, religious items, and He overturned the tables and threw them all out. Must have been quite a scene.

    We must always remember that every word He uttered, every act He performed, was done to teach all men for all times. He lived the simplest of lives, never adorning Himself in fine robes or jewelry.

    So I am certain that any evangelist or organization that leverages money for faith is the most despicable form of evil.

    Every few years we get a shred of burlap in the mail from some outfit in Texas or Oklahoma, promising that if we send it back with a donation, they'll pray over it and all our dreams will come true. I use them to start fires in the fireplace.

    No amount of money will buy us admission to His throne. We are to give and help the needy and use His money wisely in His service, but all people have free access to God. That's the beauty of grace.

    they musta got hit some as i did not get a spam from them today ( nor others ) but they are online still .. they may try to claim faulty mail system , auto responders etc , but rallying the folks on it .. they did post someones prayer for the FIRST TIME late yesterday .. if you check the scam watchers ( in google there are more folks against em than references to them) they are all saying the same , first time they ever posted a prayer someone paid for

    i smell fear so will keep on it

    if you can show you have unsubscribed and still getting stuff in the USA ( use screen captures) , they are a spammer and get a a warning , if it continues ( you have others waiting ) they bshut down the domain , if its real bad they can charge and fine them ..

    I'm on a budget, I do do all that stuff myself. It sounds like those snake oil salemen. You send money and the send you a bottle of holy water,anointing oil, and a prayer cloth. Take'm down Jack.
