Prayer for Priests

O Jesus, Eternal High Priest, live in [name of priest], act in him, speak in and through him.

Think Thy thoughts in his mind, love through his heart.

Give him Thine Own dispositions and feelings. Teach, lead and guide him always.

Correct, enlighten and expand his thoughts and behavior.

Possess his soul; take over his entire personality and life.

Replace him with Thyself.

Incline him to constant adoration and thanksgiving; pray in and through him.

Let him live in Thee and keep him in this intimate union always.

O Mary, Immaculate Conception, Mother of Jesus and Mother of priests, pray and intercede for [name of Priest]. Amen.
