Prayer for the Pope
Prayer for the Pope: Prayer for the Sovereign Pontiff
O God, the Pastor, and Governor of all the faithful,
mercifully regard Thy servant, Pope _____________ ,
whom Thou hast placed as chief pastor over Thy Church;
grant, we beseech Thee,
that both by word and example
he may edify all those who are under his charge;
that, together with the flock committed to his care,
he may arrive at life everlasting:
through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
forever and ever.
This Prayer for the Pope, also called Prayer for the Sovereign Pontiff, is a good reminder to pray for our Pope. Our Pope, the head of the Catholic Church on earth, needs our prayers! He is called to faithfully guide the Church and teach the true faith in a world that can often oppose him. We can pray for his strength, virtue, and ability to perform his responsibilities of Pope well and faithfully.
