100 Prayers For Priests (Catholic Caucus) ^ | 2003-2004 |

Posted on 01/17/2010 8:18:57 PM PST by Salvation

100 Prayers For Priests


1. This collection of Prayers for Priests was gleaned over a 12-month period, from mid-February 2003 to mid-February 2004. It was planned as a short one. But it grew and grew and is still expanding. Most of these prayers were posted to by Nadine Mansour <>.

2. Your best prayer is your own. However, if you wish to consult an example, do not read these 100 all at once; be selective. Reading several prayers may become boring. Choose only one -- at random if you wish -- and stay with it. Meditate on it, deepen it out. Choose another prayer at another time and do the same. Summarize each one in your mind. Compare them, decide which one you prefer.

3. Most of these prayers are general, for ALL priests in the world. As a member of a daisy, you may change this for your PARTICULAR priest and mention his name. Replace the plural by the singular (they, them, their become he, him, his).

The Year of the Priest

We thank you, God our Father, for those who have responded to your call to priestly ministry.

Accept this prayer we offer on their behalf: Fill your priests with the sure knowledge of your love.

Open their hearts to the power and consolation of the Holy Spirit.

Lead them to new depths of union with your Son.

Increase in them profound faith in the Sacraments they celebrate as they nourish, strengthen and heal us.

Lord Jesus Christ, grant that these, your priests, may inspire us to strive for holiness by the power of their example, as men of prayer who ponder your word and follow your will.

O Mary, Mother of Christ and our mother, guard with your maternal care these chosen ones, so dear to the Heart of your Son.

Intercede for our priests, that offering the Sacrifice of your Son, they may be conformed more each day to the image of your Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Saint John Vianney, universal patron of priests, pray for us and our priests

Salvation ...

Thank you for posting this.

I try to remember to pray for priests every day (sometimes multiple times throughout the day).

The Roman Catholic Church needs holy priests and men to heed that "inner call" from the Holy Ghost in possibly pursuing a priestly vocation or entry into a religious order. Discernment is the key here. May God and the Blessed Mother guide them and may our collective prayers buoy them on their path.

A custom prayer of mine:

God our Father,

Please send the Church holy and faithful priests.

All for the Sacred and Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.

All for the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

In union with St. Joseph, guardian of the Holy Family and of the Holy Roman Catholic Church.


Take care,
