Vatican Prayer Request

Pope's Monthly Prayer Intentions 2019

Each year the Pope requests prayers for a specific intention for each month of the coming year. You are invited to join the Pope's worldwide prayer network to respond to the Holy Father's request and to pray for this intention each month, along with millions of other people worldwide.

In addition to the monthly prayer intentions, the Pope can request additional prayer requests, relating to current events or urgent needs, such as natural disasters. The aim of additional prayer requests will to assist with the mobilization of prayer, awareness and action related to the urgent situation.

Pope Francis
