The most common prayer requests submitted to the 700 Club are about salvation, financial hardship, medical ailments, family discord or overcoming challenges such as addiction, sexual problems, suicide and difficult emotions. The 700 Club accepts prayer requests through the Christian Broadcasting Network website, located at CBN.com.
The 700 Club is a live television program that airs each weekday. It has aired continuously since 1966, making it one of the longest-running shows in broadcast history. A typical show consists of news, commentary from the anchors, interviews, feature stories and a prayer segment. During the prayer segment, the hosts select a recent prayer request to read out loud and pray about together.
In addition to online prayer requests, the 700 Club operates call centers that provide prayer, scriptural guidance and resources to people through the Christian Broadcasting Network’s toll-free prayer line. It also offers live chat and email support. Prayer center staff members are trained to offer comfort and encouragement to callers using a bible-based perspective. The organization has recorded calls and religious conversions since 1963. It has tracked individual call and prayer request categories since 1977. These statistics are not published, but CBN uses the data to measure trends and guide management, broadcast and training decisions.
