Finally got it to work! I made five of these in the attached zip file to make it easy for anyone interested.

Code:
property prependPriority : "{5} " --Set the priority for your task here

tell application "OmniFocus"
	
	-- Target the content of the front window
	tell content of front window
		
		-- Retrieve every selected task
		set theTasks to value of every selected tree
		
		-- Notify the user if no tasks are selected
		if theTasks = {} then
			display alert "Unable to apply priority to selected task names" message "No tasks were selected. Please select one or more OmniFocus tasks and try again." as warning
			return
		end if
		
		-- Begin looping through the tasks
		repeat with currentTask in theTasks
			
			-- Initialize counting variable
			set tasksProcessed to 0
			
			-- Begin looping through the tasks
			repeat with currentTask in theTasks
				
				-- Target the current task
				tell currentTask
					
					-- Retrieve the name of the current task
					set theTaskName to name
					
					do shell script "<<<" & quoted form of theTaskName & " sed -E 's/\\{[0-9]+\\} //'"
					
					set thePriority to the result
					
					set name to the "" & prependPriority & "" & thePriority & ""
					
					
					-- Increment the number of tasks processed
					set tasksProcessed to tasksProcessed + 1
					
				end tell
			end repeat
			
		end repeat
		
		-- Notify the user how many tasks were processed
		set theAlert to "" & tasksProcessed & " tasks were set to the priority: " & prependPriority & ""
		
		display alert theAlert
		
		
	end tell
end tell
