A Prayer For Priests

I found the following on a prayer card in Church and thought it was worthy of posting. As Catholics, one of the most important things we can do is to pray for our priests. We owe so much to these men and we should pray for them daily. Satan loves to attack priests and knows how much damage can be done if he can get one of them to fall!

Prayer For Priests

Ever-living God and Father of us all,
you give to your Church the Priesthood of your Son, Jesus,
and by the power of the Holy Spirit,
you provide holy priests for a holy people.
We pray for all our priests, who announce the Word of God and celebrate the Sacraments,
for those who are young and those who are old,
for those who serve in difficult and trying circumstances,
for those who are faithful and those who are faltering,
and for those who have died.

We entrust all our priests to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
that they may persevere with fidelity to you and your Church.
With St. John Vianney, patron of priests, we pray that our priests may never fail to lead us to you.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen.
