The one thing you can do

The last few weeks have been a lot to digest. Your normal routines have been overturned, schools and stores and workplaces have closed, even your Catholic Church has suspended public Masses. It doesn’t seem like there’s much you can do about it, right?


There is always one thing you can do, no matter how frightened or hopeless or overwhelmed you may feel. Pray. Patrick Madrid recently explained on The Patrick Madrid Show, “That’s something that we here at Relevant Radio®, as you know, we take this very seriously. We try to bring every single thing in our lives before Almighty God and ask him to direct our paths according to his providence, his unfolding plan for our happiness and salvation.” 

“First of all, then, I ask that supplications, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings be offered for everyone, for kings and for all in authority, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all devotion and dignity.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2

“It’s a standing command to offer prayers, petitions, supplications for everyone. That’s why Relevant Radio has instituted this campaign—Prayer vs. Pandemic. And we want you to participate,” Patrick invites you.

You don’t have to be a Catholic to join us in daily prayer for an end to the pandemic. This movement is for Protestants, Jews, Muslims, and anyone who believes in God and the power of prayer. When we unite our prayers, they are unbelievably powerful! Check out our prayer map to see how the prayers have washed over the globe!

After you sign up to join us—you’ll tell us how you will pray and how many in your household are praying—share the movement with at least seven more people, and ask them to sign up and share with another seven people. Your impact will multiply to 7, 49, 343, 2,401, and MORE! What a way to make a difference in the world. Thank you for uniting your prayers with us.

Tune in to The Patrick Madrid Show weekdays at 9am-noon ET / 6-9am PT only on Relevant Radio®.
