@frawley: We must pray for our priests, bishops, and the Holy Father

A sound priestly - @frawley not a priest - advice to put into practice!

Prayer for the Pope

O almighty and eternal God, have mercy on your servant our Holy Father [Pope Francis], and direct him according to your clemency into the way of everlasting salvation; that he may desire by your grace those things that are agreeable to you, and perform them with all his strength. Through Christ our LORD. Amen.

Prayer for Priests

Father, you have appointed your Son Jesus Christ eternal High Priest. Guide those he has chosen to be ministers of word and sacrament [like N. @frawley] and help them to be faithful in fulfilling the ministry they have received. Grant this though our LORD Jesus Christ, your Son, who lived and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for everyone and ever. Amen.

Prayer for Bishops

V. Let us pray for the bishop (Abp) of this diocese [N.], and for all the Bishops.

R. May he and they and stand and tend your flock in your strength, O Lord, in your sublime name.

Dear Jesus, bless the pope(s), the bishops, and the priests. Cf Prayer for Others and Prayer to Mother for others
