Holy Father's prayer intentions for October
October 1, 2012
Join us in prayer for the intentions entrusted to us by Pope Benedict XVI. For October 2012, we join the Holy Father in praying for:
New Evangelization. That the New Evangelization may progress in the oldest Christian countries.
World Mission Day. That the celebration of World Mission Day may result in a renewed commitment to evangelization.
Daily Offering Prayer
God, our Father, I offer You my day. I offer You my prayers, thoughts, words, actions, joys, and sufferings in union with the Heart of Jesus, who continues to offer Himself in the Eucharist for the salvation of the world. May the Holy Spirit, Who guided Jesus, be my guide and my strength today so that I may witness to your love. With Mary, the mother of our Lord and the Church, I pray for all Apostles of Prayer and for the prayer intentions proposed by the Holy Father this month. Amen.
Traditional Daily Offering of the Apostleship of Prayer
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I offer them for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, reparation for sin, and the reunion of all Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and of all Apostles of Prayer, and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month. The Apostles of Prayer offer themselves to God each day for the good of the world, the Church, one another, and the Holy Father's intentions.
Thank you for praying with us!
In a tradition that is centuries old, the Apostleship of Prayer publishes the Pope's monthly prayer intentions. To become a member of the Apostleship of Prayer, you need only to offer yourself to God for his purposes each day. When you give God all the "prayers, works, joys and sufferings" of your day, you turn your entire day into a prayer for others. You are joining your will to God's will. If you feel called to this simple, profound way of life, find out more at Apostleship of Prayer.
