Thursday’s Prayer for Priests

Image from

Dear Lord,

Hear my prayer for your priests in my life. I pray that they will persevere in their calling in the face of ridicule and hate for the sins of their brothers. I pray that they find strength in you in a world that devalues the purpose of their work, and often sees them as useless and archaic.

Sweet Jesus help me remember to thank them for the offering of their lives to lead mine towards you. I am only one small soul of the many that they touch, but may my heart be always grateful and pray for the priests who guide me to be more than what I think I can be.

In their blessing me, may I always bless them in return.
