Catholic Prayer for Priests
Almighty and Eternal God our Father, for the love you bear for Jesus Christ your beloved Son, the Eternal High Priest, bless all our priests. Remember, Lord, that they are but weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of the priestly charism which has been given to them on their Ordination Day by the imposition of the Bishops hands. Protect them from the assaults of the evil one, so that they may never do anything unworthy of their sublime vocation.
Lord Jesus, I pray for your anointed ministers: for those who are faithful and fervent and for those who are tepid in sin; for those who are tempted, lonely or desolate; for those who are young and those who are retired; for those dying and for the souls of the priests in purgatory. Above all, I commend to you the priests dearest to me: the priest who baptized me, those who absolved me from my sins, those whose Masses I have assisted and who gave me your Body and Blood in Holy Communion, those who taught and instructed me or helped and encouraged me by word and example; all priests to whom I am indebted in any way.
