An online system has been created to allow members to send the names of family or friends to the temple for the purpose of having those names placed on the prayer roll. Requests to place a name on the temple prayer rolls can now be made by visiting any temple’s information page at ChurchofJesusChrist.org/temples and clicking the prayer roll link. Requests can also be made through the “Temples” section of the Member Tools mobile app. Once the names are entered, they will be sent to that temple (or to the nearest operating temple).
Members of many religions pray for loved ones and others dealing with illness or other crises. Scriptures describe examples of when Jesus Christ prayed in groups and admonished those also present to pray. This same practice is observed in the temple, where members unite in faith and prayer, asking God to bless the individuals named on the prayer rolls.
