Vocation Prayers

  • Prayer for Priests

    Keep them, I pray Thee, dearest Lord, keep them, for they are Thine.
    Thy priests whose lives burn out before Thy consecrated shrine.
    Keep them for they are in the world, though from the world apart, when earthly pleasures tempt, allure shelter them in Thy heart. Keep them, comfort them in hours of loneliness and
    pain, when all their life of sacrifice for souls seems but in vain.

    Keep them, and remember Lord, they have no one but Thee, yet they have only human hearts, with human frailty.

    Keep them spotless as the Host, that daily they caress their every thought and word and deed, dearest Lord, to bless. Amen.

  • 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
    the priesthood and consecrated life
    to courageously follow Your will.
    Send workers into Your great harvest
    so that the Gospel is preached,
    the poor are served with love,
    the suffering are comforted,
    and Your people are strengthened
    by the Sacraments
    We ask this through
    Christ our Lord. Amen.

  • A Prayer for Deacons and Other Ministers

    Heavenly Father, since the time of the Apostles, You have inspired the Church to commission certain members to assist in a special way in the pastoral mission of Christ. Bless the deacons and all other ordained and non-ordained ministers that they may be humble and faith-inspired in their service. We ask this through Christ, our Lord.

  • A Prayer for One’s Calling

    Jesus, Divine Caller of vocations,
    You invite some to chosen professions,
    Others to distinctive spiritual work!
    Your call may reflect one’s ambitions,
    Or may be a command to a special calling.
    Inspire me to always know within my heart,
    What particular type of work is fitting
    To do Your will at that particular time.
    Your many callings vary immensely.
    They are all reflections of Your Holiness.
    Thank You for my heavenly calling and
    For maintaining the vocation of Your choice!
