Novena Prayer for Our Priests
We thank you, God our Father, for those who have responded to Your call to serve Your Church as priests. Accept this prayer we offer on their behalf: Fill Your priests with the sure knowledge of Your love. Open their hearts to the power and joy of the Holy Spirit. Keep them in relationship with Your Son. Increase in them profound faith in the Sacraments they celebrate as they nourish, strengthen and heal us in Your Name.
Lord Jesus Christ, grant that these, Your priests, may inspire us to strive for holiness by their joyful witness, as men of prayer who ponder Your Word and seek to follow Your Will.
O Mary, Queen of Priests and Mother of the Church, guard with your maternal care these chosen ones, so dear to the Heart of your Son. Intercede for our priests, that offering the Mass, they may be conformed more each day to the image of your Son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
