Prayer is powerful in our lives and the lives of those we care about.  Scripture promises that faith and prayer will move mountains.  And sometimes for prayer to be effective, it must be repeated many times.  Studies have shown the power of prayer in spiritual, emotional and physical healings.  Perhaps you have benefited personally from others’ prayers and know how important their intercession has been to you and your loved ones.

The Missionary Oblates offer many opportunities to raise up you, your loved ones, and friends in prayer.  The Oblates, in appreciation for your support, pray for you.  A circle of prayer is formed when you ask for prayer through your intentions and petitions.  And you, in turn, pray for the Oblates and their life-giving ministries.  Truly a trinity of prayer!

Mark 3:31-35

The mother of Jesus and his brothers arrived at the house.
Standing outside, they sent word to Jesus and called him.
A crowd seated around him told him,
“Your mother and your brothers and your sisters
are outside asking for you.”
But he said to them in reply,
“Who are my mother and my brothers?”
And looking around at those seated in the circle he said,
“Here are my mother and my brothers.
For whoever does the will of God
is my brother and sister and mother.”
