DeSales Media Group has launched a new bilingual online prayer community entitled Pray For Me (Reza por Mí). Located at www.dioceseofbrooklyn.org/prayforme, the site enables users to submit their own intentions and also to pray for others who have posted on the site.
“Inspired in Pope Francis’ prayer request refrain ‘Please, pray for me’, we wanted to provide a place where people can request prayers as well as pray for each other’s intentions. Pray for Me is very simple to use, to ask for support, pray for one another, and create a community of prayer,” said Monsignor Kieran Harrington, Chairman of DeSales Media Group.
Pray For Me provides a uniquely Catholic aspect to prayer intentions. The Sisters Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará, a contemplative order of nuns cloistered in Borough Park, Brooklyn, will be praying for all submitted intentions from 5:45 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. DeSales Media submits intentions on a daily basis to the nuns, who spend their lives in silence, adoration, and prayer.
The site features two options: “Request a Prayer” and “Pray for Someone.” Users select a prayer topic (Depression, Grief, Family, Finances, Healing, Marriage, Vocations, etc,), type in their personal message, and select whether they would like their prayer posted on the page so community members can pray for them. There is also an option to email the intention to the person that one is praying for. In addition, users can choose to pray for another person by reading the intentions listed on the right-hand side of the site, and clicking the “I prayed for you” button.
To submit a prayer and/or pray for someone’s intentions, visit www.dioceseofbrooklyn.org/prayforme.
