A Call to Prayer

Providing a Light in the Darkness

Prayer can help to strengthen our bonds with one another and with God, regardless of our faith identities. By turning to prayer, we call forth a light in the darkness.

Who we are: Volunteers from across the Archdiocese of Chicago who feel called to accompany anyone needing prayer or feeling the need to pray with someone else.

What we offer: An opportunity to share your prayer intentions and a request that a prayer partner call or email you to pray together. Individuals may leave a voicemail message or send an email at any time and our prayer partners regularly check to see what intentions and prayer requests are made. If you request someone to return your call, we are here to pray with you — opening our hearts to God, asking for his blessings and peace.

So encourage each other and build each other up … 
1 Thessalonians 5:11

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.
… always keep praying for all God’s people.
Ephesians 6:18

Be at peace.
St. Francis de Sales
