More Info about the St. Jude Shrine Prayer Line
The St. Jude Shrine Prayer Line is now open and available to all!
Call the St. Jude Shrine Prayer Line any time, day or night, and leave a message with your prayer request. This is a dedicated phone line that goes straight to voicemail so you never have to worry that your call will disrupt, bother, or wake up anyone at the Shrine. Just call the number and leave a message with your prayer intention. Through the miracle of technology, your message is sent to me electronically as an audio file which I listen to and pray over. But wait…there’s more! J Not only do I pray for your intention, but I send your prayer intention to another Dominican Friar in the Midwest Province aka Central Province aka Province of St. Albert the Great USA and that Dominican Friar will also pray for you! One of the hallmarks of Dominican spirituality is intercessory prayer so the Friars are really quite thrilled with this new ministry as it enables them to include the prayers of others into their own daily prayers.
Now I don’t want there to be any misunderstandings between us so let me walk you through some of the details of the St. Jude Shrine Prayer Line. As previously mentioned, no one will pick up your call to the St. Jude Shrine Prayer Line number. Upon calling, you will hear a message from me inviting you to record your prayer intention after the beep. You record your prayer intention and then hang up. You don’t have to leave your contact info because you will not receive any confirmation from the Shrine that your message has been prayed over. Sorry, but you’ll just have to trust us! But it also means that you don’t have to leave your name. You can leave an anonymous prayer intention.
Here are some things that will NEVER happen:
- You will NEVER be asked for money if you call the St. Jude Shrine Prayer Line. If you call and either someone picks up or you hear a message asking for money, please hang up immediately because you dialed the wrong number! The St. Jude Shrine Prayer Line is a FREE ministry to encourage intercessory prayer.
- You will also NEVER be contacted by a Friar as a result of leaving a prayer intention on the St. Jude Shrine Prayer Line. To be contacted or receive any kind of response you must call the general number for the Dominican Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus: 312-226-0020.
This new outreach on behalf of the Dominican Shrine of St. Jude Thaddeus is in addition to what we have always done. If you have sent us your prayer requests by mail and want to continue to do so…go right ahead. And you will receive the same response from the Shrine that you have always received in the past to your offerings. The St. Jude Shrine Prayer Line is meant to supplement what the Shrine already does and to offer MORE access to the powerful intercession of the Apostle and Martyr St. Jude Thaddeus.
