I’m Alex Shipley - GiveSendGo’s new Director of Communications! Yesterday was my first day, so I spent most of my time exploring GiveSendGo’s website and getting to know more about what makes this organization so special.
I’m writing this post to share one of my favorite features on GiveSendGo!
I really appreciate the ability to write prayer messages to someone running a campaign on the site and I’m sure most of you value this feature too (in fact, maybe that’s why you chose GiveSendGo!). I think this feature is an excellent way to keep God at the center of our endeavors, especially the ones we claim are for His kingdom. Prayer is always the first step we should take before doing anything else and sometimes it’s the only thing we can do, so I find this feature so vital and encouraging!
Plus, there’s nothing like the feeling of knowing someone, let alone dozens or even hundreds of people, are praying for you!
Prayer is key to our faith. In fact, it’s the vehicle in which we make our requests and supplications known to God, our Father (although he already knows our every need even before we ask). Paul says in Ephesians 6:19 to “pray at all times in the Spirit” and in 1 Thesselonians 5:16-18 he says, “Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus”.
This feature, along with GiveSendGo’s values, is what sets this organization apart as we are also called to be set apart from the world. So, I invite you to actively pray for those using this site (and even those who are donating to active campaigns), whether that’s writing out a prayer message on someone’s campaign or taking some time out of your day to actively pray for that person(s).
