Prayers for Our Priests


Almighty God, look upon the face of Him who is the eternal High Priest, and have compassion on Your priests in today’s world. Remember that they are but weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of their vocation. Keep them close to You lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation.

O Jesus, I pray for Your faithful and fervent priests, for the unfaithful and tepid ones; for those laboring at home and abroad in distant mission fields; for those who are tempted; for those who are lonely and desolate; for those who are in purgatory.

But, above all, I recommend to You the priests dearest to me; the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests who instructed me or helped me by their encouragement. I pray devoutly for all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way, in particular for Msgr Steele, Fr Joseph, Fr Nelson, Fr Franscisco, Fr Phong. Fr Tony, Fr Francis, Fr Theophane and Fr Charles. O Jesus, keep them all close to Your heart and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity.


O Mary, Queen of the clergy, pray for us; obtain for us a number of holy priests. Amen.







Lord watch over those you call to be shepherds of Your flock…
Our Lady of Victory please pray for them


Lord of the Powers be with us, for in times of distress we have no other help but You. Lord of the Powers, have mercy on Msgr Steele, Fr Joseph, Fr Nelson, Fr Franscisco, Fr Phong. Fr Tony, Fr Francis, Fr Theophane and Fr Charles, along with all priests everywhere. God bless them, heal their tiredness, refresh them in their daily walk, and empower them by stirring up in them every charism and fruit of the Holy Spirit given to them by Baptism, Confirmation/Chrismation, Eucharist, and Holy Orders. That they my walk without timidity, but in the strength of YOU Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen


In the Living Prayer of my life


O Lord, grant unto Thy Church saintly priests and fervent religious.

Jesus, Saviour of the world, sanctify Thy priests and sacred ministers.

Send forth, O Lord, laborers into Thy harvest.




Jesus, Lord of the Harvest, You know that the labourers are indeed few.

Strengthen, guide and protect Your bishops, priests and religious, and inspire our young people to enter and persevere in the priesthood and religious life.
