My wording probably needs work, but the website that I found that produces the postcards allows you to customize your print. So you can have anything put on there that you like.
I specified an hour because that is what Jesus ask for.
Any amount of time before the Blessed Sacrament is a blessing.
The point is to encourage people to pray for our leaders. Both political and spiritual. There is a big fight going on in our country today.
The best point to make about praying for someone else is that you pray to God that His Will be done for our country. To please give HIS strength and HIS wisdom to the person for who I am praying. (Be it a politician or a Bishop or a school principal, etc....)
I think sending them anonymously is best. Often when political issues come up the Representative wants to know that you are in their district. Well, if you pray for them you don't have to be in their district. We can pray for the President, the Speaker of the House, those we love, those we don't. They all need our prayers!
I would love to see Bishops get on board with this and encourage the priests in their diocese to start having Adoration if they don't already. I only know of one church in the entire Dallas Diocese that has perpetual adoration. There may be more, but where??? I don't know.
I would love to see the postcards put in a basket or offered at Adoration Chapels. Hopefully, it will encourage someone to drop in during lunch and pray or after work to give the traffic a chance to die down?
So many people want to pray for our country and our leaders but don't really know how? There doesn't seem to be much hope or point. If they knew they would get a card at the end of their prayer time that could be sent to anyone they wanted it gives them something tangible to put in their hand. Something tangible to send to someone saying you were prayed for today!
It would be awesome to have postcards made up with a picture of Our Blessed Mother on it and say 'that a rosary was prayed for you and your intentions'.
You could have a rosary group that meets and prays and then sends out postcards.
I would like to see different people within their own parishes choose to do something like this. They can form Prayer Warrior groups and whether prayers are said during Adoration, or in individual home prayer groups the point is to encourage people to pray.
The postcards could be ordered blank and you could write anything you wanted on them.
The point is first of all to pray. Pray for someone else. Pray for God to bless our country. Pray God will forgive our many transgressions and that He will guide our leaders.
Then you can send a postcard to someone to let me know they have been prayed for!
