The Prayer Request form does not use any form handlers or SSL technology and is sent via ordinary email and is therefore no more or less secure than any other email you may send.  The only difference is that this form is sent to us as an attachment which requires additional freely available software to open and read but is not considered any safer or more secure than any other email.
