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 Honoring Loved Ones
REFLECTION for June 2021
As the days of spring turn into summer, it seems that people begin to celebrate and remember loved ones on such special occasions as Memorial Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Fourth of July, etc. I too reflect about my loved ones. Yet I don't think I will ever be able to count or remember all the people who have made my life better and happier.
From the time I was a little baby until today, there have been those who nurtured, taught, advised, disciplined, supported, protected and cared for and about me. They have opened my mind to the knowledge of the world, and have shown me the way to God through the sacraments and the commandments.
Many of these loving people I remember well and still enjoy their company and friendship. Still, there are those others who, over time, have faded from memory. It is only fitting that I honor them all for making my life fuller and richer in every respect.
This month, let us pray to our heavenly Father to watch over and protect those who are still living and to welcome them into his heavenly kingdom those who have gone before us.
PRAYER for June 2021
L: "Love one another with the affection of brothers and sisters.
R: And out do one another in showing honor." (Rom. 12:10)
O Lord my God, I cannot begin to thank you enough for all the special people who have touched my life so deeply over the years.
They have been my mentors, teachers, companions, family and friends.
They have comforted me in my sorrows and have celebrated with me in my joys.
I ask you to watch over and protect them. Safeguard their health and shelter them from misery and pain. Grant them great happiness and joy in their lives.
May I always be eager to return the love they have given to me over the years, and help me to be a comfort and joy to them all the days of their lives.
I ask this in your Triune name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
