Pray A Minute: One Million Hours of Prayer

 for Peace, Justice and Goodwill


Do you believe in the power of prayer? What might happen if every Catholic would pray just one minute more than they already do, every day, for the specific intention of peace, justice and goodwill? 

From now until January 1, the World Day of Prayer for Peace, Catholics from across the Archdiocese of Cincinnati are invited to unite in prayer for the spiritual renewal of our country. Together, we will pray one million hours! Learn more and commit to doing your part at

Pray a Minute
A Prayer for Peace, Justice and Goodwill

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Almighty God,
you created us in your image and likeness,
forming one human family.
In your enduring love,
you have promised to never leave us.
In the midst of strife and turmoil in our land,
we ask you for peace.
May victims of injustice be relieved of their suffering.
Help us, your children, to be people of goodwill,
radiating the light of faith.
May the example of Mary, the Queen of Peace,
  move us to be more faithful disciples of your Son.
Send your Holy Spirit to inspire us in word and deed,
as we strive to bring about your kingdom here on earth.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
