A word used when Christian people on Facebook want to virtue signal to other Christian people on Facebook and is usually employed during a health, marriage or financial crisis. People don't actually engage in the activity the word implies. Sometimes used as a technique to spread online gossip disguised as a prayer request. It's the Christian version of wishing someone good luck.

My grandmother's friend knows that I have a rare blood type and have only a 9% chance of finding a kidney for transplant, but instead of trying to help me avoid a lifetime of dialysis by asking her fellow churchgoers to get tested for crossmatch, she is afraid of "offending" someone by asking, and believes that sending me a worthless little card depicting a no-name saint and a promise to pray for me, ensuring me a much shorter lifespan, largely consisting of sleeping and sitting for 12 hours a week watching my blood go in and out of my body is just as good as asking for donors and that it will help me obtain a kidney. What a joke.
