Pope Francis' Prayer Intention for September


Pope Francis' Prayer intention for September is especially close to our hearts as we are called to pray that young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries.

 

"Africa is a wealthy continent, and its greatest, most valuable resource is its young people. They should be able to choose between letting themselves be overcome by difficulty or transforming the difficulty into an opportunity.

The most effective way to help them in this choice is to invest in their education.  If young people don't have the possibility of education, what future can they have?

Let us pray that young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries."
