LOS ANGELES, March 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- PrayerGroup, a social media company, announced today that it has launched a new faith-based online community, complete with online Bible, at http://www.prayergroup.org. Building on the need for a worldwide Christian social network, PrayerGroup has developed content beyond traditional online communities by offering a variety of faith-based content including Christian music, prayer groups, international prayer request forums, Christian chat and videos. The network offers its community free of charge to members across the globe.
"Our goal is to provide Christians with a community they can call their own," said Vince Jensen, PrayerGroup's founder. "Unlike other social networks where faith is not the focus, PrayerGroup is a place for members to socialize, learn about and discuss faith with others who share common values," he said. "It's also a community for members to simply connect by sharing their music, photos and videos with friends and family who will enjoy them," he added.
With the slogan "Where Christians Come Together," PrayerGroup's mainstream feel is centered on a Christian lifestyle. It is noticeably rich with media content such as blogs, music and videos, but remains equally focused on worship through its online bible, prayer and count your blessings forums. The community also offers real-time prayer through its Christian chat feature.
At the heart of PrayerGroup.org is its mission to unite the world by expanding human compassion and the gift of prayer. Its international prayer request forum creates a world-wide prayer group using social media.
"Imagine the power of a million people praying for a common cause," said Mr. Jensen. "We are now at a point where we could do just this... where you can instantly see that people around the world have heard your request and have responded in kindness."
With the launch of its Christian social network, PrayerGroup.org is currently underway with its "ThinkPrayer" campaign designed to promote the Christian lifestyle through online faith-based media.
"PrayerGroup's community is different from others because its members have one fundamental thing in common... Faith," said Mr. Jensen. "Unlike other social networks where people connect because they already know each other... members in PrayerGroup connect because they have the Lord in common and want to share their faith with other Christians."
