Prayer for Vocations

LORD of the Harvest,

 

BLESS
young people with the gift of courage to respond to your call.
Open their hearts to great ideals, to great things.
INSPIRE
all of your disciples to mutual love and giving—
for vocations blossom in the
good soil of faithful people.
INSTILL
those in religious life, parish
ministries, and families with the confidence
and grace to invite others to embrace
the bold and noble path of a life
consecrated to you.
UNITE
us to Jesus through prayer and sacrament,
so that we may cooperate
with you in building your reign of mercy
and truth, of justice and peace.

Amen.

— Pope Francis
