The Apostleship of Prayer announced the intentions chosen by the Pope for September. His general prayer intention is: "That in the least developed regions of the world the announcement of the Word of God brings renewal to the hearts of all, prompting them to be protagonists of an authentic social progress."

The Holy Father also chooses an apostolic intention for each month. In September he will pray: "That, opening one's heart to love, there will be an end to so many wars and conflicts that continue to spill blood throughout the world."
