Catholic Prayer For Vocations :
Almighty and merciful Father,
you inspire and bring to fulfillment every good intention.
Guide your people in the way of salvation
and watch over those who shepherd your flock
and those who have left all things to follow you.
Raise up worthy ministers for your altars,
ardent but gentle servants of the Gospel,
and generous souls who renounce worldly power and profit
to serve you and their brothers and sisters faithfully
in the spirit of poverty and humility.
Inspire our young men and women to respond to your call
so that your Church might always rejoice
in plentiful servants for your harvest.
We ask this through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Daily Catholic Prayer For Vocations :
Heavenly Father, your divine Son taught us to pray to the Lord of the harvest
to send laborers into His vineyard.
We earnestly beg you to bless our Diocese and our world
with many priests, deacons and religious who will love you fervently and gladly
and courageously spend their lives in service to your Son’s Church,
especially the poor and the needy.
Bless our families and our children, and choose from our homes
those whom you desire for this holy work.
Teach them to respond generously and keep them ever faithful
in following your Son Jesus Christ, that under the guidance of the Holy Spirit
and with the inspiration of Saint Damien and Saint Marianne
the Good News of redemption may be brought to all.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
May God hear your prayers
