The following web site has started a prayer initiative for the election of the new Pontiff: 

Background information

It's good to know that with our prayers and daily toil we can become part of something great and tie in with a world-embracing Church. In these significant days we not only want to stand side by side to thank God for Pope Benedict XVI and our Church, but also to beseech God to grant us a devout and holy new Shepherd who is strong in Faith and teaching.
Well aware how much God yearns for our prayer, coming before him, our call on his Mercy (John 14,13f). This is why we have launched this initiative.
Let us support our shepherds with the strength of our faith and let us help them carry the burden of these days (Gal. 6,2). So that in our prayers and fasting we may be like Moses and his helpers who with their prayer invoked strength and protection upon their warriors (Ex. 17, 8-15).
Like the apostles together with Mary at Pentecost, we want to implore the Holy Spirit (Acts 1,14) to enlighten our cardinals so they may open up to God's will, think His thoughts, do His deeds and speak His words. With all our hearts we hope that God's wise and merciful plans may be put into action through his cardinals.
We fervently believe that God takes joy in our prayer and that He is pleased about each one of us who joins in and that He shall gladly answer our prayers (Mt. 18, 19f).

What about you? Do you feel the same way too?
  • Are you infinitely thankful to God for having given us such a wonderful, wise and benevolent pope in Benedict XVI.?
  • Do you sincerely hope that the Church will be granted a worthy successor: a rock of faith, a leader open to the Holy Spirit, a pope prayerful and holy?
  • Do you as an important part of the Body of Christ wish to contribute through the power of your prayers so that the Holy Spirit may guide, protect and enlighten our Cardinals when they determine the next successor of St. Peter?
You now have the opportunity to actively be part of this providential endeavour by having a Cardinal assigned to you, who you will support through your prayer and intercession during the coming weeks before and during the conclave and for three days following the election.
