PrayBox is a FREE prayer request application that allows visitors to submit requests. Churches can keep these requests private or display them publicly. With the public option, other visitors can let people know that they prayed for them by clicking on the “I Prayed For You” button. The prayer requester will receive a nightly email telling them how many people prayed for them. Website administrators can remove any inappropriate items.

PrayBox is a good basic prayer request plugin. It is simple to use. You just need to add the plugin and then install short codes to display the prayer request submission area and the public area as well.
