Papal Prayer Intentions

Pope Francis’ Prayer Intentions for April

Each month, Pope Francis entrusts two special intentions to his worldwide prayer network, known as the Apostleship of Prayer. For April, the intention is “that small farmers may receive a just reward for their precious labor,” and “that Christians in Africa may give witness to love and faith in Jesus Christ amid political-religious conflicts.”

Since 1844, the mission of the Apostleship of Prayer has been “to encourage Christians to make a daily offering of themselves to the Lord for the coming of God’s Kingdom and for the Holy Father’s monthly intentions.”
