For the last few months, since we’ve made the Prayer Request tool available, it’s become one of the most popular features on myCBN. Each day, users post their own prayer needs and pray for others.

 

If you have a prayer need, or just want to reach out and pray for others in need, check out the Prayer Request tool (it’s linked to in your navigation).

 

 

Answers to Spiritual Questions

Since my.CBN.com first launched, we’ve seen a lot of great discussions in our Groups and Discussion Topics. Part of the vision of my.CBN.com is to create a community of believers who help each other grow in their faith.

But with such a large community of users, there will inevitably be different views and interpretations of scriptures. Please be aware that each user is responsible for the content they post, and CBN does not change or edit users’ posts. CBN also does not necessarily endorse the views of all its users.

Here, you can find resources and teaching from CBN, found in our Spiritual Life Section.

Also, if you have urgent prayer needs, please feel free to call our 24-hour Prayer 1-800-759-0700 to speak with a CBN counselor.

Policy for Posting on my.CBN.com

Part of the vision of my.CBN.com is to create a place where users can grow in their faith, support their favorite missions and discuss issues regarding their own walks with God.

In an effort to clarify how interaction within the community should be conducted, we want to outline a Posting Policy for my.CBN.com. These guidelines pertain to social interaction between users (for our legal policies and specific issues, please see our Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.)

Reporting Content: my.CBN.com allows for open discussions that do not require pre-moderation. We rely heavily on our users to report inappropriate content. This content will be quickly reviewed by our staff and taken down if necessary.

Content that constitutes being reported is anything that contains profanity, obscenities, is meant to instigate hostility, is purposefully insulting to other users or otherwise violates our Terms of Use Agreements.

Disagreements Between Users: Within any large community, there will be the exchange of ideas and, inevitably at times, differences of opinions. Disagreements in civil discussions about issues are unavoidable. It’s important to remember that users are entitled to their opinions and as long as discussions remain respectful to one-another, differing opinions do not constitute being reported. Please remember that when discussing theology, social issues and things of denominational differences, that open discussion is encouraged as long as it is respectful and does not violate our basic terms.

"Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification” (Romans 14:19, NIV).

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace” (4:2-3).

Trying to figure out all of the tools on my.CBN.com? Here’s a quick guide to the features found in the community.

 

Dashboard: The dashboard is an area that only you will see. It contains your Activity feed where you can see what your friends have been up to and the latest happenings in your network. From the Dashboard, you can also post directly to the My Thoughts feed.

 

Friends:  Your Friends are users in your network that you email, share content with and follow. Clicking on Friends in the navigation shows you a list of your friends (to visit their profile, you just need to click on their name). To invite people to become Friends, click in the “Invite Friends” link and enter their email addresses. To find current people within the network, just use the search and look them up by name.

 

Journals: Think of these as user blogs—Journals let you post what’s on your mind, comment on your friends’ entries and see what you’re friends have written.

 

Photos: With the Photos tool, you can upload, organize and share pictures for your friends to see and comment on. The tool also allows you to tag people in the pictures and see where you’ve been tagged.

 

My Thoughts: My Thoughts is an area that you post your current status, short thoughts and say what’s on your mind. By going to the “Configure your Tools” section of settings, you can also plug it right into your Twitter account!

 

The Guest Book: This allows you to write messages on your friends’ profile and allows them to write on yours, just like writing on a wall!

 

Missions: The Missions tool lets you adopt your favorite CBN cause and set a fundraising goal that your friends help you meet. You can also easily track the results and invite others to support the Mission.
