A church in Britain has started a text-a-prayer service, allowing members to at least send their prayers to the church's mobile phone if they are unable to attend services.
"Not able to get to church on a Sunday? Would you like us to pray for you or someone you know?" says the parish church of St. Augustine of Canterbury, in Swindon, Wiltshire, an Anglican church in southern England, on its website, announcing the launch of the digital initiative.
"You can now text us your prayer requests, and we will use your prayers during our Sunday morning services," it adds.
