A Prayer

We humbly beseech you, O Lord :

that of your unbounded mercy 

you would grant to the holy Roman Church a Pontiff,

who by his tender care towards us may ever find favour in your sight, and,

studying to preserve your people in safety, 

may ever be honoured by us to the glory of your Name : 

Through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns 

with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, throughout all ages. Amen.

Prayer for the Election of a Pope 

from the Missal "Divine Worship" in accordance with the Roman Rite.
