Registration Information

In the next step, you will be asked to please fill in our Registration form.  Only the blanks with asterisks on the following registration form are required.

Most of the blanks in the Private Profile area of the Registration Form are optional.  Any information you choose to enter in the Private section of your membership Profile here will be held in the strictest confidence, known only to the Administrators and Moderators of this Prayer Group, and kept secret in accordance with our Privacy Statement. We won't even normally contact you by email, ourselves, unless you choose the option in your Registration/ Profile to allow contact by us (except in extreme cases where your membership is directly in question.).

Your privacy will always be respected here.  For further information, you can read more by clicking on this link for our Privacy Statement.

Most all the Public Profile information you may choose to enter on your Registration Form is optional, too, but wed still like to encourage you to fill in as much of this optional information about yourself as you can. Dont worry about accuracy in the optional areas, because you can always come back and change most of the optional information later in your personal Profile after you become a Member.

But whether you do it now or later, we hope you take a minute or two, at your earliest availability, to provide the optional Public Profile information about yourself. A little such information helps us all in the Prayer Group to get to know you better as both a person, and a believer, and it helps to foster a spirit of fraternal brotherhood and sisterhood in Christ, here in our group.

DISPLAY EMAIL.  You should leave "Display Email" blank, unless you have a good spam filter and want your email address to be public knowledge.  Members can still contact you privately, and you can choose to respond, or not.  On this Prayer Group, other Members can always invite you to "Private Messaging", which you can choose to reply to, or you can simply ignore.  Private Messaging is only seen by the individual Members involved, possibly along with the Administrators and Moderators of this website, if it's reported to us for questionable content.  (Any offensive content in Private Messaging from a Member should be reported immediately to our Moderators.)

You can always use such Private Messaging to have a non-public discussion with Members of your choosing, or to exchange regular email addresses. without the public or other Members seeing your message or email address. For this reason, there is no reason to show your real email address in this public "Display Email" blank, unless you simply want it publicized.

"Display Email" is Optional, but "Display Name" is Required

One required blank in the Public Profile information area is your "Display Name", which will be seen by all who visit this list.  Once you choose your Display Name, you cannot change it in the future.  It's the name we'll know you by on the Prayer Group.  This Display Name is different from the secret Username you login with.

We'd be glad for you use your first and last name for your Display Name here, so we can get to know you by your real name, but that's very much up to you.  You might prefer to use only part of your real name, or a pseudonym if you like, and that's fine with us, too.  (If you prefer even more privacy, you are, of course, free to leave all the optional info blank, at your discretion.)

The choice of Display Name to use is yours, but be aware that your Display Name will show up on all your posts and cannot be changed in the future.

Choose any secret Username you like, to login with, and of course, try to choose a Password that would be hard to guess so your Private information remains private.
