Pope Francis’ December Prayer Intention: "For a life of prayer" FULL TEXT + Video



Pope Francis’ December prayer intention: For a life of prayer
Jesus Christ: a live marked by prayer
The Pope explains, “By praying, we change reality. And we change our hearts,” he says in the Video.
Today, the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, which releases the prayer intentions, connects millions of Catholics around the world from many countries, cultures, and social and ecclesial contexts, through prayer.
The Video this month ends with Pope Francis’ invitation to prayer, and observes a  moment of silence, during the Audience with the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network on its 175th anniversary.
Fr. Frédéric Fornos, S.J., International Director of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network. 
DECEMBER INTENTION: FOR A LIFE OF PRAYER
The full text of the December 2020 prayer intention:

The heart of the Church’s mission is prayer.
Prayer is the key for us to be able to enter into dialogue with the Father.
Every time we read a short passage from the Gospel we hear Jesus speaking to us.
We have a conversation with Jesus.
We listen to Jesus and we reply.
And this is prayer.
By praying, we change reality.
And we change our hearts.
Our heart changes when we pray.
We can do many things, but without prayer, it does not work.
We pray that our personal relationship with Jesus Christ be nourished by the Word of God and a life of prayer.
In silence, everyone, each one in heartfelt prayer.
