A Catholic Priest is being persecuted by his fellow Christians


#1

Hello,

Please pray for this Catholic Priest to endure the suffering that is inflicted on him by his fellow Christians. Please pray for God to help him and for this priest to continue to serve God. This priest has attracted many people around him because of his love to Christ and he is being persecuted heavily. Right now he is suffering from blood pressure problems. He is a true blessing. Please pray for the conversion of his persecutors and for God to open their eyes to bless them and for God’s will to be done.

Thank you

Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread, and forgive us our tresspasses, as we forgive those who tresspass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Dear Lord, fill your courageous servant up with your love, and reassure him as we cannot that our prayers are with him, and to take heart that for every slander against him, his reward will only be greater in heaven. Bring joy to his heart so that he may more diligently proclaim your word into the depths of darkness of our world. Amen :signofcross:

Each part of that statement is at odds with the other. Could we have some more information, such as who might be persecuting him, in what way, and for what reasons?

This is prayer intentions, you guys should PM instead. Also Jesus gathered many around him, and suffered the ultimate persecution. Not contradictory at all.

Hail Mary,
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

Lord, I pray for this good priest that he endures his suffering with patience and love in his heart for you and his persecutors. I’m sorry he is going through persecution, Lord, but I know that it is permitted by you and is your will right now. Convert the hearts of his persecutors and help them judge their own selves instead of others who are innocent. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.

Keep them, I pray Thee, dearest Lord,
keep them, for they are Thine -
Thy priests whose lives burn out
before Thy consecrated shrine.

Keep them, for they are in the world,
though from the world apart;
when earthly pleasures tempt, allure -
shelter them in Thy heart.

Keep them, and comfort them
in hours of loneliness and pain,
when all their lives of sacrifice
for souls seems but in van.

Keep them, and O remember, Lord,
they have no one but Thee,
yet they have only human hearts,
with human frailty.

Keep them as spotless as the Host,
that daily they caress;
their every thoughts and word and deed,
Deign, dearest Lord, to bless.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever.

Amen.

Hail full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
May I partake of that grace.
Blessed art thou amongst women,
and blessed be St. Anne,
thy mother,
of whom thou wert born without spot or stain,
O Virgin Mary;
and of thee was born Jesus Christ,
Son of the living God.

Amen.

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning,
is now,
and ever shall be,
world without end.

Amen.

Thank you all for your prayers, the problems that were given to the priest are no longer there after few months of struggle, now every thing is back to normal. The priest is happy again and he is stronger than before. The path he is taking to spread the good Gospel news is difficult, but with God everything is possible.


#9

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end.
Amen.
