When I was well I loved being a part of this special
devotion on Monday night, praying the Rosary to our Blessed Mother,
then praying, the Miraculous Medal Novena, followed by the exposition of
the Blessed Sacrament and with much love, we all prayed this beautiful
Litany for all our Priests.
LITANY FOR PRIESTS
Let us pray for:
The Holy Father, fill him with courage and grace, Lord.
Cardinals, archbishops, and bishops, give them a shepherd's heart, Lord.
Diocesan priests, fill them with your Spirit, Lord.
Priests in religious orders, perfect them in their call, Lord.
Priests who are ill, heal them, Lord.
Priests who are in danger, deliver them, Lord.
Priests who are weak, strengthen them, Lord.
Priests who are poor, relieve them, Lord.
Priests who have lost their zeal, renew them, Lord.
Priests who are sad, console them, Lord.
Priests who are worried, give them peace, Lord.
Priests who are old, sustain them, Lord.
Priests who are alone, accompany them, Lord.
Missionary priests, protect them, Lord.
Priests who are preachers, enlighten them, Lord.
Priests who direct souls, instruct them, Lord.
Priests and religious who have died, bring them to glory, Lord.
For All Priests, (Especially for those priests who were and who will
always remain close to my heart)
give them Your wisdom and knowledge.
give them Your understanding and counsel.
give them reverence and awe of You.
give them patience and love.
give them obedience and kindness.
give them a burning zeal for souls.
give them virtues of faith, hope and love.
give them an intense love for the Eucharist.
give them loyalty to the Holy Father and their Bishops in
communion with him.
give them respect for life and human dignity.
give them integrity and justice.
give them humility and generosity.
give them strength in their labors.
give them peace in their sufferings.
give them great love for the Trinity.
give them great love for Mary.
let them be the light of Christ.
let them be the salt of the earth.
let them practice sacrifice and self-denial.
let them be holy in body, mind and spirit.
let them be men of prayer.
may faith shine forth in them.
may they be concerned for our salvation.
may they be faithful to their priestly vocation.
may their hands bless and heal.
may they burn with love for you.
may all their steps be for the glory of God.
may the Holy Spirit fill them, and give them His gifts in abundance.
LET US PRAY,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit, hear the prayers we offer for our priests.
Let them know clearly the work that You are calling them to do.
Grant them every grace to answer Your call with courage, love, and
lasting dedication to Your will.
We ask Holy Mother Mary's intercession as their loving mother. Amen.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you: Because by your holy cross
you have redeemed the world.
