Prayer for a Son

This is a prayer that I pray nightly - Esther of a Catholic Mom in Hawaii.

O God, grant that my son my become a priest! I myself want to live as a good Christian and want to guide my child always to do what is right, so that I may receive the grace, O God, to be allowed to give you a holy priest! Amen.

No, not really. He looks familiar though.

I love that post, Esther. I am so glad you shared it!

St. Faustina's Prayer for priests:

O my Jesus, I beg You on behalf of the whole Church; grant it love and the light of Your Spirit, and give power to the words of priests so that hardened hearts might be brought to repentance and return to You, O Lord.
Lord, give us holy priests; You yourself maintain them in holiness. O Divine and Great High Priest, may the power of Your mercy accompany them everywhere and protect them from the devil's traps and snares which are continually being set for the souls of priests.

May the power of Your mercy, O Lord, shatter and bring to naught all that might tarnish the sanctity of priests, for You can do all things. (1052)
