Could you please ask your readers to pray for a priest of my acquaintance? He has just been assigned as administrator of a parish in a rural area that has several mission stations, the two furthest of which are over 150 miles (in different directions) from the parish church. The priest is young, not yet 30 years old, so he certainly has the health and energy for such a task, but it will still be a very challenging and potentially lonely assignment.
Father, hear our prayer for your son and servant that he would find plentiful support from your Spirit as he furthers your work in the Vineyard. Reward his fidelity to you richly with the treasures of the Spirit and make his work fruitful for everyone his life touches. Mother Mary and St. Jean Vianney, pray for him. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
