Please pray for this priest


#1

We had a priest visiting from Liberia making an appeal at my parish for quite some time. Today was the last time I got to see this spiritual father of mine who I have become so very close with.

Please pray for Father Emmanuel that he has safe travels on his journey home and that he remains a faithful servant to our God so that he may be an effective instrument in bringing God’s Love and Peace to all he knows, his parish, and to the world.

Thank you!
May God bless you with His Peace!

:gopray: O Jesus, Eternal High Priest, live in Fr. Emmanuel, act in him, speak in and through him. Think Your thoughts in his mind, love through his heart. Give him Your Own dispositions and feelings. Teach, lead and guide him always. Correct, enlighten and expand his thoughts and behavior. Enable him to give himself entirely to You. Possess his soul; take over his entire personality and life. Replace him with Yourself. Incline him to constant adoration and thanksgiving; pray in and through him. Let him live in You and keep him in this intimate union always.

O Mary, Immaculate Conception, Mother of Jesus and Mother of priests, pray and intercede for Fr. Emmanuel. Amen. :signofcross:

***Fr. Emmanuel will be in my prayers. :slight_smile: ***

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible, look kindly upon us, and increase Your mercy in us, so that in difficult moments we might not despair, nor become despondent, but with great confidence, submit ourselves to Your Holy Will, which is Love and Mercy itself. Amen

***God bless you † ***

Father, you call all who believe in you to grow perfect in love by following in the footsteps of Christ your Son. May those whom you have chosen to serve you as religious provide by their way of life a convincing sign of your kingdom for the Church and the whole world. Amen

Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,

Keep Father Emmanuel, I pray Thee, dearest Lord,
keep him, for he is Thine -
Thy priest whose lives burn out
before Thy consecrated shrine.

Keep him, for he is in the world,
though from the world apart;
when earthly pleasures tempt, allure -
shelter him in Thy heart.

Keep him, and comfort him
in hours of loneliness and pain,
when his life of sacrifice
for souls seems but in van.

Keep him, and O remember, Lord,
he has no one but Thee,
yet he has only a human heart,
with human frailty.

Keep him as spotless as the Host,
that daily he caresses;
his 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 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

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
