PRAYER TO SAINT PAUL THE APOSTLE FOR PRIESTS.

St. Paul, great Apostle of the Gentiles,
intercede for us to God
[in favor of our priests].
You are God’s special vessel of election.
Through your intercession
we hope to receive from Him this special grace:
(here make your request)
[mentioning the name of the priest you pray for,
his ministry,
his spiritual life,
and his intentions].

God, you have instructed many nations
through the preaching of the Apostle Paul.
Let the power of his intercession with You help us
[and our priest] who venerate his memory this day.
