I wrote down some examples which help me to pray for priests:
formula prayer – bishop
My Lord, I bring into your arms (bishop name) of our diocese. Protect him in Your Holy Blood. Please, imprint your Will on his heart. Accompany in every step during his duties. Give a special gift of right leading and simplicity to being with people. Guide and direct by the Holy Spirit. Give a strength to be always understanding and supporting for priests. Protect before harmful pride of personal success. Please, navigate him towards current needs. Transform to be a good spiritual father. Turn his heart into being Holy bishop. Navigate and adapt always to pass a profound faith in diocese. Do not let to be silent on the most important things. Settle his soul in Your Sacred Heart forever. Support everyday with Our Lady and Michael the Archangel. Give a special protection of Padre Pio, John Paul II & John XXIII in every step. Please, send all gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, understanding, counsel, knowledge, fortitude, piety, and fear of the Lord. Amen.

For saving priesthood – emergency prayer
My Beloved Jesus, I ask you for help – save this priesthood (priest name). I’m begging you; call Our Lady to him right now. He needs her right now. It’s emergency – please, heal his doubting heart. Help him to pray the rosary – everyday. Cast out all evil spirits and do not let them to separate him from you. Take him from this cold place and immerse in your Merciful & Sacred Heart. Turn my life sufferings into a rescue – hear my prayers. Please – wash away in Your Holy Blood and protect. Settle his priesthood in your Loving Heart – help to accept your Will. Please, pour out all gifts of the Holy Spirit. I’m begging you also sent one more Angel who helps to be united in you forever and ever. Beloved Jesus, I will not give up my begging. Amen.
Be a second Christ and Holy priest: as a Guardian who prays over us if it is needed. The thing is that we cannot see God, so you are a visible representative of invisible Christ.
