ACTION ITEM! Urgent prayer request for a priest

A friend of mine asks for:

“An army of prayer for Fr. P!”

I don’t know who he is or what’s up, but if my friend asked me to ask you, then it must be important.

In your kindness, pray for “Fr. P”.

Daily Prayer for Priests

O Almighty, Eternal God, look upon the Face of Your Son and for love of Him, who is the Eternal High Priest, have pity on Your priests. Remember, O most compassionate God, that they are but weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of their vocation which is in them by the imposition of the bishop’s hands. Keep them close to You, lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation. O Jesus, I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests; for Your unfaithful and tepid priests; for Your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Your tempted priests; for the lonely and desolate priests; for Your young priests; for Your dying priests; for the souls of Your priests in purgatory. But above all, I commend to you N. and all the priests dearest to me, the priest who baptized me,  the priests who have absolved me from my sins, the priests at whose Masses I have assisted and who have offered me Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion,  the priests who have taught and instructed me or helped and encouraged me,  and the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way. O Jesus, keep them all close to Your Heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen.

  3. MrsMacD says:

    I said the prayer you posted and copied Joy65

  4. GrumpyYoungMan says:

    Prayed for Fr. P.

  5. KateD says:

    Prayed the posted prayer + Joy65 prayers and a direct appeal for Father P’s safety from all harm, and if it should be God’s holy will that this be a time of testing for Father P, that he be given the strength and fortitude necessary to persevere.

    The trial is short, but the reward is eternal.

    Praying the Memorare on this feast day of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. May Our Mother help her priest sons, you too Father Z.

  8. Beautiful prayer for priests, and I am going to put it in my bulletin. We recently had a past pastor, and a friend of mine, removed for accusations with a young man; so it is even more close to home for us. I have prayed for Father as well. I was wondering is you had a traditional prayer for our nation. After each weekday Mass we pray a devotion to either Mary, Joseph or the Sacred Heart. I would like to add one for protection or conversion of our our country. God Bless.
