We invite you to join us in praying this
Prayer for Priests
Gracious and loving God, we thank you
for the gift of our priests.
Through them, we experience
your presence in the sacraments.
Help our priests to be strong
in their vocation.
Set their souls on fire
with love for your people.
Grant them the wisdom, understanding,
and strength they need to follow
in the footsteps of Jesus.
Inspire them with
the vision of your Kingdom.
Give them the words they need
to spread the Gospel.
Allow them to experience
joy in their ministry.
Help them to become instruments
of your divine grace.
We ask this through Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns as our Eternal Priest.
