How to Use the Prayer Widget with Your Groups

We know how important prayer is to your spiritual growth, both as an individual and as part of a community of faith. That’s why we created the prayer widget for your Faithlife groups. It’s an easy way to stay connected with your group members—to know who and what to pray for.

If you are an admin of a group, here’s how to add the prayer widget:

1. Go to your group settings. Click “Sidebar”; you’ll see all the widgets that are available for your group. Drag “Prayer Request” to your list of active widgets, and place it in the widget order you prefer.
