Prayer for Priests

O, Jesus, I pray for your faithful and fervent priests; for your unfaithful and tepid priests; for your priests laboring at home and abroad in distant mission fields; for your tempted priests; for your lonely and desolate priests; for your young priests; for your dying priests.

But above all I recommend to you the priests dearest to me; thepriest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who gave me your Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way. O Jesus, keep them all close to your heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen
