“Prayer for Priests”

My God and Father in heaven, that night in the Garden, on the Mount of Olives, Your Son told Peter: " Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, who will promptly send more than twelve legions of angels to my defense?". ( Matt. 26:53 ).

Father, we ask You now: send twelve legions of angels with chalices of strength out into the Gethsemene of the Holy Church to defend and assist our priests, who, strengthened by the power and presence of these angels, may faithfully fulfill their priestly missions. Amen.

“Prayer for Vocations”

O God, who have chosen the apostles to make disciples of all nations and who by Baptism and Confirmation have called us to build up Your Holy Church, we earnestly implore You to choose from among us, Your children, many priests, deacons and religious brothers and sisters who will love You with their whole heart and will gladly spend their entire lives to make You known and loved by all. Amen.

Through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Prayer for Vocations to the Priestly and Religious Life

Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world, show forth, we beseech Thee, in Thy Church the Holy Spirit with whose power the apostles were so abundantly filled. We thank Thee for the blessings bestowed upon the work of priests and religious; and we pray that Thou wilt add to the number of those who now pray, labor, and sacrifice themselves for Thy glory and the salvation of souls. Give them unselfish zeal for Thy glory. O good Jesus, give us more priests and religious after Thine own Heart! Amen.

For the intentions of Father Domonic Toan-Tran;

Dear Lord,we pray that the Blessed Mother
wrap her mantle around your priests
and through her intercession
strengthen them for their ministry.
We pray that Mary will guide your priests
to follow her own words,
“Do whatever He tells you” (Jn 2:5).
May your priests have the heart of St. Joseph,
Mary’s most chaste spouse.
May the Blessed Mother’s own pierced heart
inspire them to embrace
all who suffer at the foot of the cross.
May your priests be holy,
filled with the fire of your love
seeking nothing but your greater glory
and the salvation of souls.
Amen.

EMMAUS PRAYER FOR PRIESTS

Lord Jesus, hear our prayer
For the spiritual renewal of priests.
We praise you for giving their ministry to the Church.
In these days renew them with the gifts of your Spirit.

You once opened the Scriptures
To the disciples on the road to Emmaus.
Now renew your ordained ministers
With the truth and power of your Word.

In the Eucharist you gave the Emmaus disciples
Renewed life and hope.
Nourish priests with your own Body and Blood.
Help them to imitate in their lives
The death and resurrection they celebrate at your altar.

Give priests enthusiasm for the Gospel,
Zeal for the salvation of all,
Courage in leadership,
Humility in service,
Fellowship with one another
And with all their brothers and sisters in You.

For You love them, Lord Jesus,
And we love and pray for them in Your name.

Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ, Savior of the world!
We humbly beg of Thee to manifest in Thy Church
the Spirit Whom Thou didst so abundantly bestow upon Thy Apostles.
Call, we pray Thee,

And may zeal for Thy glory and the salvation of souls
inflame those whom Thou hast chosen;

and may Thy Spirit strengthen them.
O Jesus, give us priests and religious
according to Thine own Heart!

O Mary, Mother of Jesus!
Obtain for fervent souls the grace to hear
and the courage to follow thy Divine Son
in the path of religious perfection.

Queen of Apostles,
pray for us.
