Reaching out to Catholic/Christians Individuals/Families

Prayer for Priests

Almighty God and Father,

In the mystery of your
plan of salvation you have
established the Church to
be a sign and instrument of
communion with you and of
unity among all people.

You give us the gift of the
ordained ministry to enable
us to be all that you are
calling us to be. Through the
sacramental ministry, the
preaching of your Word, the
shepherding of your people
and the example of their
lives, your priests continue
to put before your people the
presence of your Son as the
head, shepherd and loving
spouse of the Church.

We thank you for the gift
of the priesthood and for
the priests who serve your
Church so faithfully. We
pray that you would bless
our priests with continued
generosity, fidelity & courage.

We ask you this through your
Son Jesus Christ, who lives
and reigns with you and the
Holy Spirit, One God, Forever
and Ever.
