Prayer for Vocations
Lord Jesus, you said to your disciples "the harvest indeed is great but the labourers are few. Pray, therefore the Lord of the harvest to send labourers into his harvest." We ask that we may know and follow the vocation to which you have called us.
We pray particularly for those called to serve as priests, brothers and sisters; those whom you have called, those you are calling now, and those you will call in the future. May they be open and responsive to the call of serving your people. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
