Prayer for Priests


O Jesus I pray for our faithful and fervent priests;

For Your unfaithful and tepid priests;

For Your priests laboring at home or

 abroad in distant mission fields;

For Your lonely and desolated priests;

For Your young priests;

For Your dying priests;

for the souls of Your priests in purgatory.


But above all I recommend to You

the priests dearest to me;

the priest who baptized me;

the priests who absolved me from my sins;

the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me

Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion;

the priests who taught and instructed me;

all the priests to who I am indebted in any other way.


O Jesus, keep them close to Your heart,

and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity
