Prayer for all bishops, priests and deacons in the Church

CANONIZATION

Antoine Mekary | ALETEIA

Philip Kosloski - published on 09/20/20

Ask God to give his strength and grace to all bishops, priests and deacons serving the Church throughout the world.

It is not easy being a bishop, priest or deacon in the Church. These ordained ministers are being constantly pulled in different directions and are under extreme pressure.

One of the best things lay people can do is pray for them, that God will give them strength to persevere in the faith and do what is right.

Here is a brief prayer adapted from the The Catholic prayer book and manual of meditations that can be used to intercede for these ministers of God’s word.

Almighty and everlasting God, by whose Spirit the whole body of the Church is sanctified and governed, mercifully hear our humble supplications for all bishops, priests and deacons; that by the gift of your grace, all, in their various appointments, may faithfully serve you and have the strength to be firm witnesses of the Gospel to the world. Amen.
