The Perils of Free Will, Thursday’s Prayer for Priests

.

Precious Jesus, guide your priests to choose wisely in a world filled with temptations and the lies of the evil one of their false goodness, that draw them away from what is true and holy.

They, like their sheep, are given the free will to choose. Protect them Lord from every evil that allures. Grant them peace in their sincere repentance when they have  fallen. Give them strength to desire God and all that is holy over their own desires.

Now more than ever our priests need protection. Hear our plea, accept our offerings and our prayers on their behalf.

Amen.
