Prayer Intentions

Send us your prayer intentions!

Are you or a loved one in need of prayers? Praying for you is part of our mission at Catholic World Mission. We firmly believe that prayer is a powerful means of connecting with God. When we pray, we are not just talking to the air. We are looking toward heaven and acknowledging our dependence on God. As we appeal to Him, we recognize God’s goodness with deep reverence and thankfulness.

For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy. – St. Thérèse of Lisieux

Whether you send in your prayer intention by mail, online, over the phone or by e-mail, we will lift you up in prayer the following Friday afternoon. We reserve a special time for you to beg God to bless you abundantly.

What Kind of Prayer Intention Can I Submit?

Prayer changes everything. Prayer, at its heart, is an act of faith, asking God to step in and believing that He is both willing and able to listen to us. There is no prayer intention too large or too small — you can ask for God’s help with every need.

Jesus said to bring our every need before God, and He assured us that “whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.” (John 16:23)

Whatever your needs may be, prayer provides strong relief to a variety of situations you may face. Some people find that prayers help them in everyday life or with difficulties placed before them. Please share your prayer intentions with us. Whether they’re for you or someone you know, we will join you in your prayers regarding:

  • Finances or financial security
  • Health concerns
  • Marriages
  • Children
  • Happiness
  • Peace and unity
  • Addiction
  • Strength and guidance
  • Deceased family members
  • The suffering faithful around the world
  • And more

Nothing is off limits. When we lift up your prayer intention, we add our prayers to what you are praying for. We will ask special favor from God for any circumstances you, your family or someone you know may be going through. Your prayer intentions are sacred, and you can rest assured that we honor them.

Can I Submit a Prayer Intention If I Am Not Catholic?

At Catholic World Mission, we are committed to teaching the beliefs of the Catholic Church, bringing Christ everywhere we go and providing support by helping the poor and spreading the Gospel. However, we are here for all individuals regardless of their faith. Wherever there is a need, we serve. When you submit a prayer intention, you or your loved one does not need to be Catholic or even believe in God for us to pray.

By lifting up your prayer intention on your behalf, we believe it benefits the world and reflects the love God has for His people.

Submit Your Prayer Intention Online

You’re not alone. Everyone needs prayer. We would love to pray for you or someone you care for. We invite you to fill out the Prayer Intention form on this page. Once you submit your prayer intention, our team commits to praying with you the following Friday afternoon.
