Please pray for these priests, deacons and seminarians these next two months:
Pray for Our Priests!
Your prayers are effective!
We received an email from a priest in our archdiocese in response to the monthly prayer column that you see below. May this help you focus your prayers for each of our priests, deacons and seminarians.
Thank you for offering prayers for me. I do have a number of prayer requests as you are able:
- Help me to be a good pastor who is patient and a wise leader.
- Help me to be a gentle and efficient confessor.
- Help me to remain prayerful while celebrating the sacraments.
- Help me to find joy and life in taking care of the administrative responsibilities of a parish and school.
- Help me to be a good teacher and preacher of God’s word and will.
- Help me to be a man of deep prayer.
- Help me to remain hopeful in the face of obstacles.
- Provide wisdom and clarity of God’s will for our community’s plans as we move towards the future regarding money and properties.
- Help our staff to be effective in using our gifts for God’s ministry and always work together.
- Help all those who lead ministries in our parish to be filled with faith, hope, love and a spirit of cooperation.
