Prayer For April- Vocations
just as Mary said 'Yes' to your plan for her,
help us to listen to you calling us
that we may follow our vocations
and say 'Yes' to whatever you ask of us.
We pray especially for those who have been called to a religious life,
that they may lead others to you.
We pray that men and women will hear your call
and serve you through serving others.
through Christ our Lord.
Pope Francis' 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 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 mercy.
“We walk in the footsteps of Jesus so that we may have life in all its fullness”
