Following are the Intentions of our Holy Father Pope Francis for the month of January, courtesy of the Apostleship of Prayer:
- Economic Development. That all may promote authentic economic development that respects the dignity of all peoples.
- Christian Unity. That Christians of diverse denominations may walk toward the unity desired by Christ.
January is always a good month to pray for Christian unity, given the fact that Christian Unity Week is usually observed toward the end of the month. January is also a good month to pray for the end of legalized abortion in this country and for a renewed respect for all human life, in observance of the anniversary of Roe v. Wade on January 22, 2014. For more information on that, check out the March for Life site.
