St faustinas prayer for priests

In this prayer, we ask God to send His holy angels to protect and guide priests as they do their work. We also ask for the intercession of Mary and St. John Vianney so that we can have strength to do our duty of sanctifying priests.

Father, Creator of all and source of all goodness and love, please send your holy angels to protect us, to guide us, and to defend us as we journey through this world.

  • Prayer: The jesus prayer is the most popular method used by Orthodox Christians to pray. It’s a simple but powerful way to bring you in contact with God and His divine grace.
  • Saint Appreciations: St. Raphael, who was also known as the “angel of healing” because of his ability to heal people spiritually and physically, is said to be one of the patron saints of priests. He is often depicted holding a bowl with burning oil in it, which represents healing from heaven through Christ’s love. In addition, St. Michael the Archangel was given special protection over priests since he would fight against demons who tried to harm them during prayer services or other religious events.* Piety: Priests are required by canon law (Church law) to say prayers at least three times per day—morning prayer before breakfast; evening prayer after dinner; night prayers before going to bed—and may add additional private devotions throughout each day as well

Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Almighty ever-living God, might wellspring of all holiness, bestow on your Church the abundance of your kindness.

In this prayer for priests, St. Faustina asks that God pour out his goodness and love on the entire Church and all its members. She is asking that we all become holy people through our union with Jesus Christ who is “the source of all holiness” (Hebrews 7:26). We are also reminded that our Savior loves us so much that he sacrificed his life so that we may be saved from sin, death and hell.

Let the loving intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint John Vianney strengthen us in our duty to sanctify priests.

When we think of Mary, we often think of her as a mother. She is the mother of Jesus, and she also became our mother when she gave birth to us in grace and adopted us into her family (John 1:12-13). But as the patroness of priests and bishops, Mary also is our spiritual mother. She desires to guide us along the path to holiness with her Son Jesus Christ.

It’s only fitting then that Saint John Vianney should be named co-patron of priests with Mary because he was indeed a holy priest who had an immense impact on his flock during his time as parish priest in Ars France from 1818 until his death at age 73 in 1859. He loved God very much and worked tirelessly to help people come back to God through prayerful preaching, penance and works of charity.

Saint John Vianney understood what it meant for him personally—and how it would affect other people—when he took on his role as a priest devoted entirely toward living out Christ’s message in word and deed every day (Catechism 1740).

We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.

Pray for priests to have strength to do their work.

You can pray for priests to have strength to do their work. You can pray that they be protected from evil. You can pray that they be guided by the Holy Spirit, or defended by angels on their way home at night.

I hope that you’re enjoying the series so far. It’s been a lot of fun to create and I look forward to writing more posts soon! This is just one way that we can all use our writing skills for good, and I encourage everyone who reads this blog to find their own ways of doing so in whatever way feels most natural for them.

O Jesus, eternal Priest, keep your priests within the shelter of your Sacred Heart, where none may touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch your Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with your Precious Blood. Keep pure and unearthly their hearts, sealed with the sublime marks of your glorious priesthood. Let your holy love surround them and shield them from the world’s contagion. Bless their labors with abundant fruit and may the souls to whom they minister be their joy and consolation here and in heaven their beautiful and everlasting crown. Amen.”

  • Blessed Mother, keep your priests within the shelter of your Sacred Heart, where none may touch them. Keep unstained their anointed hands, which daily touch your Sacred Body. Keep unsullied their lips, daily purpled with your Precious Blood.*
  • Holy Spirit of God, preserve in purity and holiness all whom you have chosen to be Your Priests in this world.*
  • Jesus Christ our Lord and Redeemer, may Your most Holy Mother ever watch over us and intercede for us at the throne of Grace; through You we hope in Heaven’s mercy for ourselves and for those who love us so well on earth. Amen.*

It is so easy to forget the holy priests who have dedicated their lives to service, especially when we are faced with so much bad news about the Church. But it’s important that we remember them and pray for them.

In this prayer, St. Raphael asks God to draw priests closer to Him and shield them from worldly dangers and temptations. He asks that their labors bear abundant fruit in this life, and that their souls will be joyous in heaven after death.

This prayer is perfect for praying for all priests—especially if you want to help them overcome the challenges they face on a daily basis!
