Join Our Online Community of Prayer Friars with hands extended in prayer

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
—Matthew 18:20

Welcome to our online community of prayer! We’re glad St. Anthony guided you here. The Franciscan friars, St. Anthony Shrine staff, and people around the world in our online prayer community are happy to pray with you and for your intentions. Our petitions are more powerful when we lift our voices together. If you are able, please take a few minutes to pray for people’s prayer requests, and in return, others will pray for your intentions. Let’s allow our faith to unite us.

Prayer Requests

When you submit your prayer request on our website, it will first be sent to a moderator for approval. Approval can take up to 24 hours, but it is usually much quicker. Once approved, your prayer will be posted to the online community of prayer section of our website where others can see and pray for your intention. Your intention will also appear on a large scrolling monitor next to a first-class relic of St. Anthony at our National Shrine of St. Anthony Chapel in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Post Your Prayer Request

Post your prayer request by filling out the form below. You can post your prayer request anonymously by using only your initials or first name only.
