Catholic Intention Connect

inConnCatholicThis prayer is designed to apply Jesus’ teachings on prayer and the power of collective prayer in a very practical way. Joined together with the love of Christ, we focus our prayers on the specific goals of global health, harmony, and social justice.

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
– Mark 11:24

The Prayer

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;


Praise Him, all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.


It has been said that when we change the way we look at the world, — the world we look at changes.


Welcome to this Catholic meditation on the  power of God’s love.


Take a few deep breaths and relax your body. As you inhale, imagine the air  you are breathing as the life force of the Holy Spirit, filling your heart with a bright light. As you exhale, feel this light spread through every cell of your body, every molecule, and every atom. Feel your body and soul become infused, become one with the divine creative energy of God. Christ’s prayer now becomes realized: that we are all One in the Father. Let this awareness deepen with each breath.


United in prayer and faith in the Holy Spirit, I now recognize the intimate and loving presence of Christ as the very essence of my being. This intimacy allows me to look at our world, the “new earth,” through Christ’s eyes. Through these eyes of love, I see the Divine in all creation.


Praise God from whom all blessings flow


As stated in the gospel of Mark, 11:24,  “Anything you pray for and ask, believe that you will receive it and it will be done for you.” I believe that it is  God’s desire for us to live in a peaceful and healthy world. With full faith and confidence in God, the Source of all love, I join my prayer partners and ask for a world of compassionate and loving leaders. I believe we are now  receiving those leaders who are willing to be guided by divine wisdom and compassion. In Jesus’ name, they are now rising…rising to respond to God’s love, to our love, thus, jointly, our love transforms the world.


Praise God from whom all blessings flow


I pray for the loving presence of Christ to strengthen me and my prayer partners. We have chosen to promote love and compassion on both personal and planetary levels.


In the body of Christ, we are unified as one enormous force of love, wisdom and compassion.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow


Joined with Christ, we acknowledge that all the leaders of the world are  also one in the Father, as the Father is one with them.  We envision the love of Christ as a beam of light and we see that love entering their willing hearts. As one with the divine, their hearts, minds and souls are now opened vessels, filled with divine wisdom, love and compassion for all humanity and every sentient being.  In faith and thanksgiving, we see that our leaders are creating a peaceful, just society and healthy world. All is in divine order.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow


We know that the world’s economic leaders, whose decisions influence our environment and our future, are unified within the Sacred Heart of Christ. We see  the  Holy Spirit enter and energize their willing hearts with the gifts of  wisdom, love and compassion. In faith and  thanksgiving, we know that our business leaders are now guided…guided to make decisions that that are aligned with the divine creation. Their actions now ensure a world of pure water, clean air, and vibrant nutrients to sustain God’s holy creation. All is well.

Praise God from whom all blessing flow


Thank you God, for the faith and knowledge that your love is manifest here on earth as it is in heaven. With full faith we know that as we believe, we  now receive your gift of a blessed earth.


For all of this, God, we say thank you.


Thank you for your presence and love.


Thank you for all your countless blessings.


In Jesus’ name in Jesus’ name, Amen
