prayer beeper

n.
A beeper supplied to a patient and which displays a page for that patient after another person prays for them
Example Citation:
"The prayer beeper Schroeter uses works like this: Her church, the Most Pure Heart of Mary in Topeka, leases about 50 pagers and gives them to people who need prayer.
Anybody — friends, relatives, strangers — can pray for the ill person. After praying, they dial up the patient's pager and leave a code number, 888, which means heaven has been invoked on their behalf."
— George Bullard, "Prayers for sick a beeper away," The Detroit News, April 30, 2000
