Prayer for a Deceased Priest

prayer a deceased priest

In your charity, please pray this prayer for a deceased priest, whenever possible.

There are many priests in purgatory and hell.  We can’t do anything for the ones in hell, but we can do a lot for the ones suffering in purgatory.

A  priest devotes his whole life to helping his flock get to heaven, by offering the sacraments, praying  for us daily through the Divine Office, and by counseling and teaching his flock.

In your charity, please pray this “prayer for a deceased priest” as often as you remember.

You might also consider praying a rosary at least once a year for priests.

God bless!

Prayer for a Deceased Priest

O God, Thou didst raise Thy servant, N., 
to the sacred priesthood of Jesus Christ, 
according to the Order of Melchisedech, 
giving him the sublime power 
to offer the Eternal Sacrifice,
to bring the Body and Blood of Thy Son Jesus Christ down upon the altar, 
and to absolve the sins of men in Thine own Holy Name. 
We beseech Thee to reward his faithfulness 
and to forget his faults, 
admitting him speedily into Thy Holy Presence, 
there to enjoy forever the recompense of his labours. 
This we ask through Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord.

  1. this the part where I have seen for years taking place in one’s family
    place by the devil in the influence of another family member where they tie up the strong man it is happening again. Heres its trying again thank you God that you have given me witness to it

  2. I ask for prayers for my uncle REV. T. G. Kennedy who passed away after 60# years of faithful and loving service for God and his people.

    • Anne….My Wife and I pray everyday for souls of priests in Purgatory…Especially for the priests that Baptized us…and the ones we personaly knew……………We know include Fr.T.G Kennedy….

    • Aaah shame, hope you will overcome it one day. Hopefully his soul is in Purgatory and not hell. Continue to pray for his soul.
