Perpetual Prayer for Priests / Seminarians / Vocations 72


#1901

Lord, You told us that
"The harvest indeed is great but the laborers are few.
Pray, therefore, the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into His harvest."
We ask You to strengthen us
as we follow the vocation to which You have called us.
We pray particularly for those called to serve
as priests, sisters, brothers and deacons:

Those whom You have called,
Those You are calling now,
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.

Prayer for my brother aspirants (Don, Francisco, Scott & Vincent) who, like myself are discerning a possible call to the permanent diaconate.

God our Father,
You have a plan for each one of us,
You hold out to us a future full of hope.
Give us the wisdom of Your Spirit
So that we can see the shape of Your plan
In the gifts You have given us,
And in the circumstances of our daily lives.
Give us the freedom of Your Spirit,
To seek You with all our hearts,
And to choose Your will above all else.
We make this prayer through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

0 Jesus, Good and Gentle Shepherd,
grant that the men and women from our community,
may have the grace and the courage to hear and answer Your call
to the priesthood and religious life.
Give them the wisdom to realize that life is a gift.
Let them realize their life is part of YOUR plan.
Call forth those You have chosen to spread the Gospel message,
and help them to freely respond to a life of service in the church.
May the parents and families of our parish,
support and encourage our young men and women to search for,
follow and answer the call of God in their lives.

Amen.

Eternal God...
Bless your Church with holy and faithful priests,

Jesus,
hear our prayer for the spiritual renewal of bishops, priests, deacons,
brothers, sisters, seminarians,
especially those of our own diocese.
We praise you for giving their ministry to the Church.
In these days, renew them with the gifts of Your Spirit.

You once opened the Holy Scriptures to Your disciples
when You walked on this earth.
Now renew Your ordained and chosen ones
with the truth and power of Your Word.

In the Eucharist,
you gave Your disciples renewed life and hope.
Nourish Your consecrated ones
with Your Own Body and Blood.
Help them to imitate in their lives
the death and resurrection they celebrate around Your altar.

Give them enthusiasm for the Gospel,
zeal for the salvation of all people,
courage in leadership and humility in service.

Give them Your love for one another
and for all their brothers and sisters in You.
For You love them, Lord Jesus
and we love and pray for them in Your Holy Name.

Amen.

"Prayer for Priests"

My God and Father in heaven, that night in the Garden, on the Mount of Olives, Your Son told Peter: " Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, who will promptly send more than twelve legions of angels to my defense?". ( Matt. 26:53 ).

Father, we ask You now: send twelve legions of angels with chalices of strength out into the Gethsemene of the Holy Church to defend and assist our priests, who, strengthened by the power and presence of these angels, may faithfully fulfill their priestly missions. Amen.

"Prayer for Vocations"

O God, who have chosen the apostles to make disciples of all nations and who by Baptism and Confirmation have called us to build up Your Holy Church, we earnestly implore You to choose from among us, Your children, many priests, deacons and religious brothers and sisters who will love You with their whole heart and will gladly spend their entire lives to make You known and loved by all. Amen.
