Prayer for Vocations

Loving God, you have made us in your image and likeness,
and for this we will praise you forever.
As we pray this Prayer for Vocations,
we call to mind the priests and consecrated religious
whose lives have been instruments of holiness.
Thank you Lord for the gift and inspiration each of them has been,
proving that your steadfast love endures forever.
Through the intercession of the Blessed Mother,
St. Sebastian, and St. Maria Goretti,
we pray to you Lord Jesus,
that more men and women will open their hearts to your loving plan.
We pray especially for those whom you are calling
to serve the church as priests, deacons, sisters and brothers.
Help them to hear and answer your call to discipleship.
Bless our families Lord, so that they may become
instruments of holiness and peace.
Let us give thanks to the Lord for He is good
and His steadfast love endures forever.
