When people make prayer requests on here, do you write them down in a booklet to pray for later? Also, do you put down the reason for the prayers, or just the names? And do you put any type of date for how long you plan on praying for them, or do you just continue praying for them for a while and then stop for whatever reason at a later time (either because it's been a while, or the person posted an update)?

I keep two notebooks in my Iconostasis. One with a list of people's first names of the living I have been asked to pray for, and the other has the names of the dead. In the morning I read the Small Paraklesis to the Theotokos for the living, and in the evening, I pray the Trisagion and Prayers for the Dead after Compline.
When it's my turn to make the Prosforo for the Liturgy, I extract some of the names from each list and submit them to the Priest on my diptych so that every name on the list is commemorated at least once a year in the Liturgy.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I pray for them when I am here, and when I say my personal prayers I ask that the Lord remember all who have asked for my prayers--and ask specifically for those that are on my mind that day. I think ozgeorge has a good system, though. . . I am just not that organized at this moment.

That's a good way of doing things, George. So far we only write the names down, but as the list grows we've begun to wonder how we can better sort the information out.
