How can I sort my backlog (Kanban board) to see todo's in order by priority?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: How do I sort the backlog

I'm trying to create a filter to see all my tasks in Backlog (first column, and this is actually the name of the collumn) in order by priority.

I'm using JQL like this: projet = "XXX" and status = "Backlog" ORDER BY priority DESC

This JQL sentence didn't sort by priority (Highest, Hight, Medium, Low, Lowest) my tasks in backlog :/ 

I will appreciate help, thanks!

Is it sorting alphabetically instead of priority order?  What is the order you see when you go to admin -> priorities?

No, it's not alphabetically sad

The order in Admnistration > Issues > Priorities is: Highest, High, Medium, Low, Lowest (so the standard one). 

Ok, so what order are they being sorted in?
