HAVE YOU EVER?
Changing God's Mind?
Have you ever heard of anyone say "Why should we bother praying if God is all-knowing? He knows what we need, and we can't change his mind because he's changeless?"
Prayer is not about giving God information or changing his mind. It is an activity he wants us to do because it draws us out of ourselves and builds relationships - with Him and our fellow human beings. That's why he rewards it.
God wants us to think about Him, to care about pleasing Him, to love Him. He also wants us to care about one another and not to think exclusively about our own needs. Thus He rewards it when we pray for others. Because God already knows what we need, praying is not something that helps him. It helps us. It rescues us from thoughtlessness and makes us better, more loving people.
Every good endowment and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change (James 1:17)

Holy Father's Prayer Intentions
The Tradition of the Church has enriched many prayers and devotions with indulgences, and one of the requirements for gaining an indulgence is to pray “for the intentions of the Holy Father”, but what are we praying for?
These intentions, which have been set down by tradition and the Magisterium for centuries ,are:
Our Father. Hail Mary.
