PRAY: THE STORY OF PATRICK PEYTON is an inspiring documentary about a poor,
uneducated Irish immigrant who sets sail for America in 1928 with nothing but his faith and
dreams of becoming a millionaire. Arriving in Pennsylvania and unable to find work, he
accepts the position as a janitor at the cathedral, which rekindles his long-lost desire to
become a priest and changes the course of his life. Nearing ordination, his life takes a radical
turn when he is stricken with tuberculosis. Facing certain death, he sinks into despair. A visit
from his mentor, who delivers a simple message to pray, lifts the darkness. Taking his advice
to heart, Patrick prays fervently to Mary, the Mother of Christ, for her intercession, and he
experiences a miraculous recovery. Feeling deep gratitude, he dedicates his life to tell all the
world about the power of prayer and encourages families everywhere to bring prayer into their
homes. Never taking “no” for an answer, he convinces Hollywood’s biggest stars to help him
spread the message, “the family that prays together stays together,” through the power of
mass media, including radio, television, and film. Father Peyton’s fame spreads around the
world, and audiences in the millions flock to his public prayer rallies. This is the story of a
tireless missionary, an unlikely hero, and one of history’s greatest advocates for family prayer.
