Welcome to the PRAYER NETWORK
It was over twenty-five years ago when one of the Pallottine Fathers was inspired with the idea to begin The PALLOTTINE PRAYER NETWORK. His dream was to connect as many people as he could to join in prayer for the intentions of one another and our world. His dream became a reality when invitations were sent out to people asking them to join this special prayer group. The response was great and has grown throughout the years. There are now almost 500 members of the PALLOTTINE PRAYER NETWORK who are spread from Hawaii to New York, and Puerto Rico to North Dakota -- and of course, hundreds of members in between. Together the members pray a daily prayer and pray for the intentions that are sent to them. There is such power in prayer and we celebrate the inspiration of this humble and prayerful Pallottine who began this prayer connection from sea to shining sea.
Please continue reading more details about our PRAYER NETWORK...
The PALLOTTINE PRAYER NETWORK consists of men and women, youth and elders, religious and laity, along with many families who are willing to set aside a few minutes each day to pray for the needs of the world, our Church, our government and religious leaders, the poor and the rich, those suffering from addictions and abuse, the immigrants and outcasts, the hungry, sick and dying, the homeless, the lonely and the stranger. These intentions, along with other requests and personal needs, are prayed for daily by all members of the PALLOTTINE PRAYER NETWORK.
The power of prayer is extraordinary, so please consider becoming a member. Each member receives a certificate of membership, a wallet-sized membership card and every three months all members receive a listing of prayer requests. In addition, members also receive a card of prayer and reflection on a special theme for each month.
There is an address listed at the bottom of this page for you to send in your request to join us and/or there is a computer link at the bottom of this page for you to "click on" and register to become a member of the PALLOTTINE PRAYER NETWORK. God bless you!
This month's theme is: Prayer to Lead a Good Life
REFLECTION for April 2021
As I see it, there are two aspects to what a good life is all about: the receiving of many blessings and the giving of many blessings.
I think a person can say that he or she has led or is leading a good life if either has been blessed with a loving family and true, caring friends; if either has enough material things to sustain body and soul and live in reasonable comfort; if either truly feels at peace with God and neighbor.
In like manner, one has led a good life if he or she has blessed others with happiness and joy; if one has been there when somebody needed comfort or a shoulder to lean on; if one has gone out of his or her way to care for the sick, the poor, those less fortunate in life.
This month let us pray to the Lord to help and guide us so that we continue to lead good lives and make the world that much better to live in because of our presence in it.
PRAYER for April 2021
L: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart....
R: And He will make straight your paths." (Prov. 3:5-6)
God the Giver of all good things, it is often easier to be good and do good when our lives are filled with many blessings. May we always show our thanks to you for all the good people and things you have bestowed upon us by our eagerness to share our good fortune with those around us.
Help us to be humble and caring people who strive to make the world a better place in which to live.
Even when things seem to be going against us, may we always love our neighbor as ourselves, and forgive those who have injured us and be willing to seek forgiveness of those whom we may have offended in thought, word or deed.
Though we must attend to the many tasks that we face each day, teach us how to be true people of prayer and reflection so that we may never lose sight of your promise of eternal life. Help us live lives of goodness that are the reflection of your love and kindness to us. Hear us, O Lord. Amen
