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: A Morning Prayer
REFLECTION for September 2021
If it were up to the people who advertise their products on TV, they would have us put our faith in all kinds of things: from creams and gels that will make us look so much younger, to exercise machines and pills that will give us that muscular, perfect body we've always wanted.
The trouble with putting our faith in "things" is that they, like us, will one day not be here. Mortality has a way of putting such faith into clear perspective. Hopefully we come to realize that before it's too late.
As we read in the new testament, "Those who use the things of this world should not become attached to them, for this world as we know it will soon pass away." (1 Corinthians 7:31) Christ came to show us a new way of living so that one day we can live forever in His Kingdom. He asks us to put our faith in Him.
This month let us pray to Jesus and ask Him to help us see the folly of this world and place our faith and trust in Him and His promise.
PRAYER for September 2021
L: "Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
R: And they will soar on wings like eagles." (Is. 40:31)
Lord Jesus, we live in times in which many people no longer go to church or seem to have turned away from you completely. It is often easy to become discouraged by such events.
Help us to keep strong faith in you and your Church. May we be the living signs of unity and strength that can help sustain our faith when we come together and pray with others who also trust in you.
As our world faces many difficult situations such as armed conflicts, diseases and viruses, poverty, and hunger, give us the strength to witness to our faith through our deeds of love and concern for others.
May we continue to bear witness to our faith so that we may never turn away from following you with all our minds and hearts.
Hear us, Lord, and strengthen our faith. Amen
