Daily Prayer for Priests

Heavenly Father
grant that our priests be
strengthened and healed by the
power of the Eucharist they celebrate.
May the Word they proclaim give them
courage and wisdom.

We pray that all those whom they
seek to serve may see in them
the love and care of Jesus,
our Eternal High Priest, who is Lord
for ever and ever. Amen
Mary, Mother of the Church, look tenderly
upon your sons, your priests.
Joseph, patron of the Universal Church,
pray for us all.

Southwark laity Commission, 1993

Generous and Loving Creator, Ground of our Being, Spirit of Life,
lead us each to truly become good shepherds,
to be brother and sister to each other as we worship together
and work to build up your reign of peace and loving compassion in our world.

For the priests of our church at this time of wrenching revelation, crisis and pain,
we pray for your strength, courage and humility.
We pray for healing.
For each priests who has been a witness to the genuine love of Christ for us,
and who has led us to greater communion with Christ in our church,
we offer a great prayer of thanksgiving.

May we all go forward, the non-ordained and the ordained,
each fulfilling our vocations in love and respect and collaboration.
Guide us on our journey to wholeness.
Together move us, in your Spirit of reconciliation,
to build up a Church worthy of your name. Amen.

(Susan Troy, M.Div., 2005)
