Somebody Cares is partnering with the Prayer and Crisis Referral Network (PCRN) to provide a crisis prayer line accessible by phone or text 24 hours a day.
Calls for prayer to the SCA line will be immediately forwarded to an on-duty, trained prayer volunteer. Each volunteer has access to the Somebody Cares referral list as well as the PCRN manual so they can refer the caller to a local church or ministry for follow-up, physical help, etc., whenever possible.
PCRN was founded in 1997 as the National Prayer Hotline by Linda Morrison when she was president of the Women’s Aglow chapter in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Shortly after moving to Tampa, Florida, in 2002, the prayer line began operating under the covering Somebody Cares Tampa Bay with an added component: access to the SCTB network of churches and ministries where callers could get follow-up help with their spiritual and material needs. PCRN continued to grow and now represents a number of ministries, including RTN Radio Networks, The War Room Movie, Marketplace Ministries, and more.
The SCA Prayer Line can be reached at 855-459-2273 (CARE). If you are interested in volunteering, please download a Prayer Line Volunteer Application. For more information, contact Linda at [email protected] or go to www.prayerandcrisisreferral.org.
