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 for the Defenders of our Country
REFLECTION for July 2020
Prayer for the Defenders of our Country
Hopefully when it comes to the 4th of July or any other holiday on which we honor those who have served or are presently serving our country, we think about more than just fireworks and a day off from work.
The men and women who defend our country, more often than not, put their lives at risk so that the rest of us can sleep peacefully each night. We owe them our gratitude and many thanks for all that they have done for us.
This month we take time out to pray for our service men and women, and ask God to help them be outstanding examples of what it means to be people who are there to help and protect others and not to exploit them.
If history teaches us anything, there will always be those who misuse power for their own advantage and not for the betterment of the people. May we never lose sight of or take for granted the freedoms we enjoy because of those who are willing to defend those rights and freedoms.
PRAYER for July 2020
L: The effect of righteousness will be peace.
R: And the result of righteousness, quietness and trust forever." (Isaiah 32:17)
O Lord our God, as much as we would love to always live in peace, we know that conflicts will arise between people and nations.We pray for those among us who are willing to put their lives in harms' way in order to safeguard our families and country. Help them to be diligent in their duty, careful in dangerous situations, and respectful of the rights of all people.
Bless their efforts to bring or restore peace and harmony to those whose lives have been shaken by violence and unrest. Watch over them in your mercy so that they many return home safely to their families and loved ones.
We ask this in the name of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
