Daily Prayer for Priests
O almighty eternal
God, look upon the face of Thy Christ, and for love of Him who is
the eternal High Priest, have pity on Thy priests. Remember, O
most compassionate God, that they are but week and frail human beings.
Stir up in them the grace of their vocation which is in them by
the imposition of the Bishop’s hands. Keep them close to Thee,
lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything
in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation. O Jesus,
I pray Thee for Thy faithful and fervent priests; for Thy unfaithful
and tepid priests; for Thy priests laboring at home or abroad in
distant mission fields; for Thy tempted priests; for Thy lonely
and desolate priests; for Thy young priests; for Thy aged priests;
for Thy sick priests; for Thy dying priests; for the souls of Thy
priests in purgatory.
But above all,
I commend to Thee, the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved
me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who
gave me The Body and Blood in the Holy Communion; the Priests who
taught and instructed me or helped me and encouraged me; all the
priests to whom I am indebted in any other way, particularly __________________.
O Jesus, keep
them all close to Thy heart, and bless them abundantly in time and
in eternity. Amen.
