About Prayer Chain Online

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Pam Nelligan, and I'm the founder of Prayer Chain Online. Back in 2009, I found myself writing prayer requests everywhere: on church bulletins, on little slips of paper that I would stuff into my purse, and even in the margins of my Bible. Prayer requests seemed to come from everywhere! People would call me and ask for prayer, they would email me, they would send me text messages and even IM me. In church, the pastor would mention prayer requests, and people would stop me throughout the day at work and even at the grocery store to ask for prayer. After a while I found myself getting very disorganized, and I worried about forgetting - or misplacing - prayer requests that were entrusted to me. Since I was a software developer by vocation, I knew that there had to be a way to organize all these requests and make myself more productive. And hence, the idea for Prayer Chain Online was born.

What started out as a personal prayer list in 2009 has grown into a platform supporting almost 20,000 members from 190 countries, logging over 5.5 million prayers (as of March 2024). We have seen God answer our prayers and draw our pray-ers closer to God in the process. In May 2020 we launched our Biblical Counseling ministry to help reach those who are hurting. As of March 2024, we have had over 2,500 requests for counseling. Our goal is to help people use a Christ-centered approach to address life’s problems by applying God’s truth as found in His Word. We offer true hope for their problems, which can only be found through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our counseling services are free-of-charge and we rely on the Holy Spirit to lead people to us.

I have tried very hard to make Prayer Chain Online a platform that would not only help me, but help others to become more organized and diligent in their prayer lives as well. I have tried to give it a personal touch, so it doesn't feel so technical. But let's face it -it's a program that runs on a computer. There is always going to be someone who doesn't like merging technology with their spiritual disciplines. For those of you who don't mind making use of the computer to become more efficient, I welcome you!

I don't want to bore those of you who are just trying to find out more about our company. If you want to know more about me personally, use the contact form to send me an email - I promise I'll reply.

God bless you on your spiritual journey!
