I believe that many of us here in the forum pray, and pray daily, but it is not always easy to "see" that as a reality. I've had for some time the thought and the desire to suggest here in our MoG forum that we create a chain of perpetual prayer. Many of us pray every day, and we live in different continents and time zones. I wonder if we could bring our individual prayer effort to form a community of prayer all together. I'm thinking of two ways of expressing the participation which eventually could be integrated somehow in a calendar. One way could be by prayers that we recite, the Rosary, the chaplet of Divine Mercy, the Stations of the Cross, etc. The second way could be by attending Mass, spending time in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, or meditation, or lection divina, etc. I'm thinking that we could have a calendar like those of perpetual adoration, where people sign up around the clock and write the screen name of the person who would be praying at a given time (same as we can see who is on line at a given time). We could start off by putting together in a calendar the time that we actually pray or could commit to pray, whether daily, weekly or monthly, and then see what else we would need to add in order to have perpetually, 24/7 at least one member of the forum actually praying. The primary prayer intention of this participation would be The Intentions of the Immaculate Heart of Mary -which includes the Church and the Pope, and of course the whole world. But by participating we would commit also to praying for each other and each other's personal intentions and family members. I'm inserting a simple little poll to see if there is enough eco and interest from people to do something of this sort. What are your suggestions/ideas? Thank you!
