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 Homeless and Hungry
REFLECTION for October 2020
Each year as the weather begins to cool and warns us of the approaching winter, we gather our food supplies, prepare our houses against cold and drafts, and pull out our warmer jackets and sweaters. We want to be ready for what is heading our way.
But there are those who, although they too notice the changes taking place outside, do not have the means to protect or insolate themselves from the elements. They are the homeless and often the hungry. They try to make due with the meager means at their disposal, but often have to suffer in silence as there are few who know of their plight or take the time to care about their needs and circumstnaces.
This month we pray for the homeless and hungry, and hope that our prayers will also remind us to put our works into action and help the home less and hungry in any way we can.
PRAYER for October 2020
L: "There will never cease to be poor in the land..
R: Therefore I command you to open wide your hand to your brother of sister, to the needy and to the poor, in your land. (Deut. 15:11)
Jesus, our compassionate Lord, how often you took pity on the poor and marginalized people with whom you came in contact. As your followers, you ask us to walk in your footsteps.
Help us to extend a helping hand to those who are homeless and hungry. If we personally know someone who is struggling for lack of shelter or food, may we not ignore their need but rush to help them in any way we can.
As we hear about and see on TV the plight of the homeless in our area, may we be willing to generously support the shelters and food pantries to which they can turn so that they can have a sense of hope and know that others truly care about them.
The poor will always be with us. May we too be with them to help them in whatever way we can. We ask this in your name. Amen
