RYM - ADVENT PRAYER CALENDAR

Anita and Natasha thought that during Advent they could do an Advent calendar of prayer intentions. They are posting the intentions on their facebook page Natasha Anita RYM - they are always happy to welcome new friends.

Below are the prayer intentions to date

19th December

Today's Advent prayer intention is for those who have not experienced God's love. So often, we pray for the poor (and rightly so!) but often it is those who are comfortable, who are missing something so vital in their lives. We pray for those in our society who are not materially needy, but who are searching for something with more meaning in their lives

Today's prayer intention is for our Redemptorist parishes throughout the world!

16th December

Today's Advent prayer intention is for peace. Give us the courage to promote peace in our world!
