Apostleship of Prayer

The mission of the Apostleship of Prayer is to encourage Christians to make a daily offering of themselves to the Lord for the coming of God's Kingdom and for the Holy Father's intentions. Since 1844, their mission has been to help Christians live out their desire to serve God with their whole lives and their whole selves. Nourishing this spiritual program is the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
