How do I change the priority function into #s for stories of Epics?

We are running: JIRA v6.3-OD-06-017

I would like to replace the priority with numbers such that each epic has stories that are prioritized numerically. Then to dynamically change those 'priority numbers' as projects evolve. The goal is to allow users to see quickly and easily what the 'next' priority is.

Is this method the correct approach?

thank you,
