The Prayer Intentions of Pope Francis for February:
Dear Lord, during this month of February, we ask your blessing on those who are afflicted and in need of comfort. May they look to you as their eternal provider.

We also pray that the poor, refugees, and marginalized may find welcome and comfort in our communities. Loving Father, grant their every need.
