We want to introduce you the Prayer Warriors Movement, a diocesan wide monthly prayer initiative to use communal prayer to turn back the tide on serious evils that exist, starting this month on the topic of Human trafficking and sex trafficking. The Prayer Warrior Initiative was developed by people who wish to support, unify, collaborate, and be cohesive in responding to social injustices, charitable needs, spiritual destruction, and deterioration of faith that is happening in our midst! The Prayer Warrior Movement wants to do this primarily through communal meditative prayer, and for those inspired by the monthly causes to become more engaged and active through our time, talent and resources, but primarily through active collaborative, organized Prayer!
