Prayer for Vocations I
Gracious and loving God,
help the men and women of our diocese 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 though Christ our Lord.
