Pope’s Prayer Intentions

Holy Father's Prayer Intentions





April 2017

Universal: Youth
That young people may respond generously to their vocations and seriously consider offering themselves to God in the priesthood or consecrated life.








Starting in 2017 the Pope will present only one prepared prayer intention per month, rather than the two presented before this year. He plans, however, to add a second prayer intention each month related to current events or urgent needs, like disaster relief. The urgent prayer request will help mobilise prayer and action related to the urgent situation. We will publish these urgent prayer intentions on this website as soon as they are issued by the Vatican and published by the Apostleship of Prayer. For further information, go to: Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network
