#prayforWYD


There are now less than 300 days left until World Youth Day (WYD) in Krakow. Preparations for this special encounter of young people from around the world with Pope Francis are now entering a very intense phase. In order to be fruitful, not only is great organization necessary, but most of all we need prayer. Therefore, together with the Spanish social media outlet 'May Feelings', the WYD Organizing Committee has prepared a virtual marathon of prayers for WYD under the name #prayforWYD.

By following the link mayfeelings.com/prayforwyd, people from all around the world can unite in prayer for WYD Krakow 2016. Simply click on the “pray” button and a new point will appear on the world map with all of the others. Thanks to May Feelings, long before hundreds of thousands of young people arrive in Krakow, we will be able to see our strength in numbers.

This service allows you to sign up for anonymous prayer with a simple point on a map marking the country you’re from. You can also create a profile to have access to more advanced options. For example, after logging in, not only will the mark appear on the precise location from which you are praying, but also show who in your area is praying for the same intention. The service also allows you to add prayer requests to your profile for your own intentions. Other users can let you know that they are praying for you by clicking on your intentions. Thanks to this feature, we can feel the unity of the Church throughout the world and the power of personal prayer offered for us from the remotest parts of the globe.

Next to the map of the number and locations of the prayers for WYD, you will see a clock counting down to the beginning of WYD in Krakow. We hope that the closer we get to WYD, the more prayers will be on our map. We encourage everyone to join in prayer for effective preparations for World Youth Day. We want this event to even today move the hearts of young people all over the world, and allow us all to discover the hope that comes from encountering Jesus.
