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 our Farmers
REFLECTION for September 2020
Every time I go to the grocery store I find myself worrying about high prices, wondering if the store will be out of the item I came for, and hoping I can get a good bargain here or there.
It would be a rare instance that I ever think about the farmers who labor so hard to provide the many foods that I enjoy with such ease. Yes, without our farmers our diets would probably be very lean and unhealthy.
One has only to look at the faces of so many starving people around the world to realize the importance of good food sources and to appreciate those who make those products available to us all.
This month let us pray for our farmers, especially at this time of year when the harvests are beginning to come in. May their crops be abundant. May they be protected from accidents and harm as they work in the fields. May God bless them for all they provide for the rest of us.
PRAYER for September 2020
L: "The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose.
R: And both will be rewarded for their own hard work." (1 Corth. 3:8)
Heavenly Father, You are the giver of all good things. We thank you this day for blessing us with farmers who grow and provide the food necessary for our health and well-being.
Bless their crops with the necessary sun and rain that will help them grow. Protect them from the storms that can damage and destroy them. Watch over them so that they may mature and provide an abundant harvest.
Bless their cattle and livestock. Keep them healthy and strong and grant them many off-spring.
Bless their homes, barns and fields so that after a hard day's work they may rest from their labor in comfort and peace.
Bless our farmers in mind and body with good health and keep them from all accidents and harm so that they may enjoy and prosper in their way of life. Hear us we pray. Amen
