Prayer for Priests

the-savior-juan-de-juanesPrayer for Priests

O Jesus, I pray for your priests;
for your faithful and fervent priests,
your unfaithful and tepid priests;
for your priests laboring
at home or abroad
in distant mission fields;
for your tempted priests;
for your lonely and desolate priests,;
for your young priests;
for your sick priests;
for your dying priests;
for your persecuted priests;
for the souls of your priests
in purgatory;
for all your priests worldwide.
Above all,
I recommend to You the priests
dearest to me –
the priest who baptized me;
the priests who have absolved me
from my sins;
the priests who presided at Masses
I attended;
all the priests to whom I am indebted
in any way.
O Jesus,
keep them close to Your heart,
and bless them abundantly
unto eternity.
