Prayer For Priests

Lord Jesus,
You have chosen your priests
From among us
To proclaim your word
And act in your name.

By your Spirit put your word on their lips
And your love in their hearts
To bring good news to the poor
And healing to the broken-hearted.

Since they are earthen vessels,
We pray that your power
Shine through their human weakness,
In their afflictions sustain them;
In their doubts reassure them;
From temptation deliver them.

May Mary your mother
Help them not to lose heart
But remain strong in the Spirit
To the glory of God the Father
