Prayer for Priestly Vocations
Loving and faithful God,
you promised that in every generation
you would provide shepherds for your flock.
We ask you to raise up men
who are generous in their service,
willing to offer their lives and all their gifts
for your glory and for the good of your people.
May our faith today be our legacy for the next generation.
We ask this in the name of Jesus
and through the Holy Spirit
who lives and reigns with you, now and forever.
Prayer for Vocations
Father, you call each one
of us by name and ask us to follow you.
Bless your church by
raising up dedicated and
generous leaders from our
families and friends who
will serve your people as Sisters, Priests,
Brothers, Deacons, and Lay Ministers.
Inspire us as we grow to
know you, and open our hearts
to hear your call.
We ask this in Jesus name
Prayer for Seminarians and Priests
Jesus, I thank you for your gift
of the priesthood to the Church.
I pray for all priests and seminarians today
May they hear your invitation to “follow me,”
in every aspect of their lives.
Bless them with love and joy
as they seek to know you more deeply.
Give them courage and zeal
as they serve you and your people.
Give them wisdom and trust
as they discern your will.
We ask this with confidence in you.
Our Father…, Hail Mary…, Glory be…
St. John Vianney, patron of priests, pray for us.
