Prayers for Pope Francis and the Church

Join Our Sunday Visitor in lifting Pope Francis up in prayer. We encourage you to unite with the universal Church and invoke the Holy Spirit to guide not only Pope Francis, but all of us in our journey of faith. You can also submit your prayers below.

Come, Holy Spirit!
Fill the heart of your servant Pope Francis.
Grant him wisdom and courage
as he shepherds the faithful as
successor to St. Peter and Vicar of Christ.
And bless your Church
that we may be inspired by his example of
humility, simplicity and love
and that we may be unified
as one Body of Christ
gathered in prayer and thanksgiving
throughout the world.
