“So there shall be one flock, one shepherd”

Gospel To The Globe

Gospel to the Globe is a 24 hour Catholic Online Intercession Prayer movement in the Catholic Church founded by Rev. Fr. Daniel Poovannathil under the Mount Carmel Retreat Center, Trivandrum.

Inspired by John 10:16 “So there shall be one flock, one shepherd” Christians from all denominations are praying together. The prayer line started on May 13, 2021 to intercede for the Evangelization of the World, Church and missionaries.


Evangelization of the World and praying for the church and missionaries through Eucharistic Adoration, and the spiritual renewal of families. Started to pray for the evangelization of India and extended for the global evangelization.

Gospel to the Globe equips Christians for the essential work of evangelization so that all people may personally encounter Jesus Christ and be transformed into His missionary disciples. Families from all around the world; including India, the Middle East, North America, South America, Australia, Europe, Africa, New Zealand are praying in the prayer line.


  1. Dedicating one hour for the intercession and building a network of evangelizers – Gospel to the Globe is building a network of prayer, support and communion in the Church’s mission of evangelization. More than a prayer ministry, Gospel to the Globe is a growing community of missionary disciples united in our love for Jesus and commitment to evangelize.
  1. Personally evangelizing in our communities – Following the Great Commission to “make disciples of all nations”, Gospel to the Globe members spread the word of this mission among the friends and family circle. This local evangelization work is foundational to all the work we do globally.
  1. Formation sessions – Gospel to the Globe is giving discipleship formation sessions every month to help people evangelize by personal transformation. Gospel to the globe is equipping hundreds of Catholic leaders across the globe through training sessions by the priests under MCRC.

How To Be An Intercessor

– The call to be an Intercessor should not be taken lightly and should be carefully discerned by each participant. Periodically, members of the Prayer and Intercession Team should discern their commitment to the ministry.
– Intercessors need to be in good standing with the church, to be one accord with the teachings and leadership of the church.
– Partaking in the Weekly Liturgy, making regular use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, with time for individual personal prayer, Eucharistic Adoration, the reading of Scripture, and the Rosary are also opportunities for people to grow in holiness as they fulfil their role of Intercessor.
– Intercessors should be open to the movement of the Holy Spirit and find opportunities to hear from the Lord in silence.
– Intercession required discipline. Like exercise, it must be regular. Intercede by decision, not just inspiration.
– Due to the nature of the role, Intercessors should protect themselves and their family members with the ‘Armor of God.’ (Eph 6:10-18) The tempter will come when least expected and create division and distrust between family members. A regular prayer life, asking for repentance from God, forgiving those who have harmed us, and renouncing lies will assist members to fulfil their role with peace and wisdom.
