Intercessory Prayer Network
“Again, [amen] I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything for which they are to pray, it shall be granted to them by my heavenly Father. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:19-20).

Prayer intentions for January 2021:
Pastoral Plan Priority #4 – Build and Support Family and Community
Prayer for Reverence for Life Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021
Almighty God, giver of all that is good, we thank you for the precious gift of human life: For life in the womb, coming from your creative power; for the life of children, making us glad with their freshness and promise; for the life of young people, hoping for a better world; for the life of people who are disabled, teaching us that every life has value; for the life of the elderly, witnessing to the ageless values of patience and wisdom. Like Blessed Mary, may we always say “yes” to Your gift. Help us to realize the sacredness of human life and to respect and cherish it from conception to its natural end. And bring us at last, O Father, to the fullness of eternal life in Jesus Christ our Lord. +Amen
Pastoral Plan Priority #5 – Promote the Healing Journey in the Lord
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Jan. 18-25, 2021
Merciful Creator, We thank you for your persistent love and your patience with our brokenness. Help us to work for justice, truth, and light – as you have shown us through your prophets. Help us to be reconcilers, as you have reconciled us in Jesus Christ. Help us to work with you in the healing of the world. We pray through Christ, who comes reconciling and making all things new. + Amen

Canadian Catholic Students Association National Conference
Creator God, send your Spirit upon all those gathering virtually for the Catholic Students Association National Conference Jan. 21. Inspire these followers of Jesus Christ to ever greater commitment and zeal as they proclaim and live the Gospel. + Amen
