Generally, prayer requests are established by creating a topic for your request. They will remain in the forum for two weeks and will then be deleted.
If you wish to extend the prayer request for another two weeks, post a reply requesting an extension. The first three requests for an extension will automatically be granted, providing a period of two months for the request to be active. Requests for additional extensions beyond two months will evaluated by the moderator.
If you wish your prayer request to remain until a specific date, include that in your request or in a reply.
