Prayer for a Priest

O Jesus, our great High Priest,

Hear my humble prayers on behalf of your priest, Father [N].

Give him a deep faith,

a bright and firm hope

and a burning love

which will ever increase in the course of his priestly life.

In his loneliness,

comfort him In his sorrows,

strengthen him In his frustrations,

point out to him that it is through suffering that the soul is purified,

and show him that he is needed by the Church,

he is needed by souls,

he is needed for the work of redemption.

O loving Mother Mary,

Mother of Priests,

take to your heart your son

who is close to you because of his priestly ordination,

and because of the power

which he has received to carry on the work of Christ

in a world which needs him so much.

Be his comfort, be his joy, be his strength,

and especially help him to live

and to defend the ideals of consecrated celibacy.

Amen.
