Thursday’s Prayer for Priests and Vocations

Thursday’s Prayer for Priests and Vocations October 23, 2014

la_merced-thumb-300x574O Jesus, Good Shepherd, raise up in all parish communities, priests and deacons, religious, consecrated lay people and missionaries according to the needs of the whole world, which you love and want to save.

We entrust to you in a particular way our parish community; create in it the spiritual atmosphere of the first Christians in order that it may be a cenacle of prayer where we lovingly receive the Holy Spirit and his gifts.

Assist our pastors and all consecrated souls. Guide the steps of those who have generously welcomed your call and prepared themselves for Holy Orders or the profession of the evangelical counsels. Direct your loving gaze to the many well-disposed young people and invite them to follow you. Help them to understand that only in you they can achieve their fulfillment.

We entrust these great desires of your Heart to the powerful intercession of Mary, Mother and model of all vocations, and beg you to sustain our faith in the certainty that the Father will listen to what you yourself have instructed us to ask for.
