Prayer roll request app

Postby gotpigs » Thu May 25, 2017 1:05 pm

My husband has a great idea! :idea: Does anyone know if we can make an app to put names on a prayer roll list and send it (encrypted, of course!) to a particular temple? We figured that it could be a great new technological advancement for the Church. We would have to sign in to lds.org to access it. What does anyone think? If we can't do that, does anyone know why not?
Thanks and blessings to everyone!

Aside from FamilySearch partners, the church does not support our allow third party apps to use the LDS Account.

You can call or email a temple to put a name on the prayer roll.

LDS Tools now has temple schedules and basic info. That might be a logical place to add such a feature, if the Church wanted to implement it officially. You could suggest it using the "Contact Us" button in LDS Tools (under Help).

Where can I obtain a list of email addresses that will accept names to be added to a prayer roll?

At LDS.org > Families and Individuals > Temples you will find all of the temples and their phone numbers. If you call, some temples will give you an email address to add names to the prayer roll. Most temples will accept names by phone. At some temples, you need to add names at the temple.

Not all temples have an email address for submitting names.

Some of the email addresses that aren't on LDS.org can be found in the LDS Tools app. I'm guessing that not every temple provides an email address because email requests could cause a lot of administrative overhead or could be abused – for example, I could imagine someone mass-emailing names to all of the temples (instead of just their own temple), emailing a spreadsheet with the names of everyone in their ward, or emailing the same names repeatedly every day.
