How to Pray for Vocations

HOW TO PRAY FOR VOCATIONS

Today on World Day of Prayer for Vocations consider praying a rosary for vocations:

*Pray the first decade that you may grow in holiness in your own vocation.

*Pray the second decade for all those called to marriage.

*Pray the third decade for those called to the permanent diaconate.

*Pray the fourth decade for all those called to religious life.

*Pray the fifth decade for all those called to the priesthood.

At Every Sunday Mass when you take time for personal prayer at Mass, ask God that a young man from your parish will hear the call to the priesthood or religious life, and that a young woman will hear the call to become a sister. At Home during mealtime, pray for vocations with your family and encourage your children to be open to God’s call.

WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

God our Father, You made each of us to use our gifts in the Body of Christ. We ask that you inspire young people whom you call to priesthood and consecrated life to courageously follow your will. Send workers into your great harvest so that the Gospel is reached, the poor are served with love, the suffering are comforted, and your people are strengthened by the sacraments. Through Christ our Lord. Amen
