Prayer Request Details

Edits an existing prayer request or creates a new one.

Getting Content

Content is passed in through a page parameter, referenced as RequestGuid. There are quite a few examples of passing page parameters (also known as query parameters) lying around the documentation, and here is a great example.

Page parameters

The parameters that this block looks for are as follows.




The guid of the request you wish to display details of.



An optional page parameter containing the Guid of the specific group.


If passed in, this will update the block to use the Person with the Guid corresponding to this value instead of the currently logged in person.

Enable Auto Approve

If enabled, prayer requests are automatically approved; otherwise, they must be approved by an admin before they can be seen by the prayer team.
