you can change your board's filter to sort by priority, e.g.

project = my project order by priority DESC

the actual order is governed by how you have them listed in the admin section, e.g. Highest, High, Medium, Low, Lowest

note that if you are currently using Ranking for rank your issues then this will be disrupted.

another consideration would be to use swimlanes by priority or card colors by priority.

If Classic project click on the ellipses in top right and select Board settings > general

By default Kanban boards sort by Rank (i.e. top of the list is top priority). So you don't need to maintain an explicit Priority field unless you are managing priority outside of a board (e.g. you have an external incident/defect management tool which is used for prioritisation). If you definitely need an explicit Priority field, go with what Jack said.
