It is said that there is power in numbers. Why not use those numbers to help your prayer reach God? That is the idea behind the Dear God Project, a global platform for sharing inner hopes, fears and aspirations through the medium of prayer. With just a simple click of a button, you can submit your prayer or request and have others pray on your behalf. You can submit a prayer directly on the site, through Facebook or via Twitter. Either way, just the simple act of voicing your prayer will bring it that much closer to being answered.
To help inspire you, here is a sampling of the top prayers.
Is the world ending? I don’t want the world to end. I like my life and have things planned. I know though when you have things planned they never go the way you imagine. Its scary the stuff that goes on in the world. I pray for Japan and all the people there, i pray all survivors will be found and saved, please rest on the land and with the people. I know theres more to life than the mundane drill of 9-5. i know i have to do that in order to survive but i know theres more to tap in to, please show it to me. Take fear away from my life and the lives of others and i pray we will all live in peace. Please take away the fears in my heart. I say thank you for my life, please help me to live it to the full. Please give me energy everyday and energy to others who need it. I pray love and beauty will grow in me, mylife, my relationships and in others. – 267 PRAYERS
I have been typing everything that I tried to put into words, but I end up getting tongue twisted and erased all. I miss You.. I miss talking to you in the morning right when I wake and I miss saying goodnight to you before I sleep. I miss the feeling of Your unconditional love that I consistently dwelled in. There are so many things holding me back to be the person You want me to be, and I’m here asking for help.. Life has been a wreck, full of bad decisions and built up anger and unforgiveness without You. I know that church cannot save us, but I want to be able to find people to open up to and fellowship with real believers. So here I am.. On bended knees, offering everything that is left of me. Mold me, guide me, walk beside me<3 - 114 PRAYERS
The words “I’m sorry” don’t seem to suffice the situation. I have walked away from our union. I turned my back on you and demanded a divorce. I asked that we remain friends if you can even call it that. I was abusive in the way that I expected you to fulfill my every fancy but ask for nothing from me in return. I had hoped to go on living my life without ever giving you another thought. It has been impossible. Every day revolves around you. I hear your name whispered from the lips of my friends and family. I see you in my dreams, you encase my every thought. I have known all along what I have been missing. I was afraid of what my life could become with you. I was afraid of just how high I could soar with you. I hope that you will take me back, that I can somehow reconcile our marriage. I will strive to be the kind of woman that you have created me to be. All I have to offer is myself, so that is what I will give. My heart is yours. I only hope that you find me worthy of your grace and forgiveness. I offer you my love, and hope to feel yours once again.- 126 PRAYERS
I want to be an instrument of Your love and mercy, but my heart is filled with such hate and anger. Please forgive me for everytime I refused to love because I felt wronged. Please lead me by Your example so I can live a life that is pleasing to you. Lead me to do things out of love simply because it is the right thing to do. Heal me, tame my heart. – 183 PRAYERS

Please open up my eyes, dear Lord that I might clearly see. Help me stand for what is right, bring out the best in me. Help me, Lord, to just say “no” when temptation comes my way, that I might keep my body clean. When my teenage years are over, I know that I will see that life is lived its very best with you walking next to me. – 246 PRAYERS
