prayers for the holy father
In our prayers for him, we can ask our Heavenly Father to help guide our Pope Francis to be a worthy Vicar of Christ (His "representative”) as he tends to the spiritual needs of over one billion Catholics worldwide.
O God, the Shepherd and Ruler of all Your faithful people, mercifully look upon Your servant Pope Francis whom You have chosen as the chief Shepherd to preside over Your Church. We beg You to help him edify, both by word and example, those over whom he has charge, that he may reach everlasting life together with the flock entrusted to him.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
