World Day of Prayer for Vocations
Loving God, you call all who believe in you
to grow perfect in love by following in the footsteps of Christ your Son.
Call from among us more men and women
who will serve you as religious.
By their way of life, may they provide a convincing sign of your Kingdom for the Church
and the whole world.
We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Gracious and loving God, help the
men and women of our parish to hear the
call to serve.
Our needs are great and our people
thirst for your presence.
Open the hearts of many, raise up
faithful servants of the Gospel, dedicated,
holy priests, sisters, brothers and deacons,
who will spend themselves for your people and their needs.
Bless those who are serving now
with courage and perseverance.
Grant that many will be inspired by their
example and faith.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
