MOTHERHOUSE. A “POWERHOUSE” of Prayer

Written on: April 27, 2015

Mr. Ed Lawrence contacted the Grey nuns of the Sacred Heart about being a “Praying Congregation” for a cyber-network which is being designed.  It involves an internet website that will connect people who are requesting prayers for a particular intention with religious congregations who will accept the responsibility of praying for these intentions.

Our Motherhouse community is a powerhouse of prayer and has agreed to be the nucleus of the “praying congregation” for the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart.  This is a new venture which Philadelphia’s Archbishop Charles Chaput has endorsed as well as local Religious Congregations. We will be one group of several who will be praying intercessory prayers for intentions being sent our way.

“Prayers Unite the Word” links those in need of prayer support and Religious Congregations who promise to pray for their welfare.  Both groups benefit:  people who have no one to pray for them are remembered and websites of Religious Congregations are linked through prayer and this cyber-network.  Religious Congregations have their charisms and mission promoted to more people.  Gratitude is the outcome of both thrusts of this cyber-network.


We accept your prayers directly, also. Click the Prayer Link to learn how to request prayers from the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart.  PRAYER LINK. You can also submit prayer requests online from our Contact Us page

    Hi all!! I am in desperate need of many prayers for my son Dante.
    He is 18 and autistic, will turn 19 on June 7th. He was arrested yesterday and taken to jail. He isn’t dealing with this very well and told me he would rather die than be in jail. I am absolutely broken and have to try to be strong for him. I am literally crying here and begging each of you to please pray for my baby boy Dante.

    I continue to be in desperate need of intercessory prayer from my Christian brothers and sisters. I am desperately seeking Divine intervention during these next two weeks to resolve my legal issues in my favor without another court appearance. I fear that another court appearance will not go well for me, and result in the destruction of my career, and life. I am also asking for Divine intervention into my financial problems. I am in desperate need of money, not only to fight my legal battles, but also to pay my regular bills, and survive. I am also asking that the Holy Spirit directly guide my attorney in everything that he does on my behalf from now on. And, if necessary that I will be provided with additional competent legal counsel very soon to assist me in resolving this legal issue in my favor. I am praying for signs and miracles to begin to happen in my life very soon. In Jesus name I pray, Amen. Thank you all for your prayers.
