A group of Christian youths has launched an innovative website www.LetsPrayForIndia.com that randomly assigns willing visitors the name of a Lok Sabha constituency to pray for during the 2014 General Elections in India. One of the youths said the group members are all Christians with strong belief in the power of prayer. The website also has a touching prayer for the elections. There is also a Facebook page at facebook.com/letsprayforindia.
After launched the website www.LetsPrayForIndia.com, S Denzil, one of young men involved with the website explained, “Our rationale is that if good representatives are elected from each constituency, the parliament will be full of good people and India will get a good government”. He added, “We need as many people’s prayers as possible”. He said “LetsPrayForIndia.com” invites all India lovers to pledge their prayers for the nation as it prepares to elect new leaders”.
The Website’s Main page
The prayer has an attractive background image incorporating the hues of the nation’s tricolor and allows visitors to enter their names and email addresses. Upon clicking the “Adopt” button, the visitor is randomly presented with the name of a constituency to pray for, along with a couple of external sites which provide additional information about one’s ‘adopted’ constituency. All this information is transmitted to the prayer volunteer as a one-time email for reference.
