150th Anniversary Prayers

Sisters at prayer in parish church

Please join us in prayer!

Each month, we'll post a prayer written by our sisters for use on the 19th (Because it was August 19, 1873 when our mission For the Life of the World began in Jacksonville, Ill.) Each prayer focuses on a unique expression of our preaching ministry. You are invited to print it out, pray it with us, and share it with others. Thank you for joining us in prayer!
