Prayer Box | A Message from Jay

Every Friday on This is the Day we add letters from viewers into our prayer box. The prayers can be for the person who sent in the letter or for someone they know. When we thought about adding the prayer box, we weren't sure how many people would send in requests. The response has been overwhelming.

Every day, letters are delivered to my office to be included into the prayer box. The prayers requested can tug at your heart. There are prayers for young children suffering from difficult diseases. People ask for prayers because they are lonely or feel all alone. They write about their parents or their children. These are letters from individuals asking to be remembered in a special way.

You play an integral role in all of this. We are fortunate at CatholicTV to have a powerful prayer community. I know that there are many times that I have asked for prayers. It is comforting to know that I am not alone in my prayers and am joined by you and many others in lifting our voices to God. I am convinced that prayer works. I have learned that it is not always what we had hoped but it God’s will.

I ask today that you set aside a few moments from your busy day and ask God to remember all those who have sent in prayer requests. Thank you for all you do for our parish of the airwaves and please do not hesitate to send us any prayer request you may have. You can send them to us on Facebook or Twitter, or email them to thisistheday@catholictv.com.
