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 before Driving
REFLECTION for December 2021
As I get older, I keep saying to myself (and others), "one of these days I'm going to quit driving. There are too many crazy drivers on the road today!"
Those very words cause me to stop and do a little soul searching about my own driving habits. Am I one of those crazy drivers? Am I polite and courteous to other drivers or do I cut people off or just have to speed up and beat them?
I know there are times when I get so frustrated with other drivers that I am tempted to be like them, if not worse. But what would that accomplish except possibly getting into or causing an accident.
My thought (and action) this month is this: while getting into my car and putting on my seat belt, why not say a little prayer asking God to protect me and others on the road, and to remind me to obey the traffic laws.
PRAYER for December 2021
L: "The Lord will keep you from all harm...
R: He will watch over your coming and going both now and forever." (Ps. 121:7- 8)
Lord, sometimes we forget to ask for your help and feel we can trust our own talents and skills. Today, we ask for your protection and guidance as we set out driving on the roads and highways. Keep us alert and aware of the many hazards and accidents that can affect our lives. Give us the skills to avoid or prevent them.
Remind us to be good drivers who obey the traffic laws and teach us patience so that we will always be polite and courteous to other drivers.
Keep us from taking unnecessary chances in traffic so that we may never endanger the lives of others by our actions.
Teach us to plan out our trips and travel times well so that we do not end up making poor choices and taking chances in our rush to get somewhere.
Protect and guide us as we drive, O Lord. Amen.
