Prayer for Vocations

Do you have a desire to give yourself to God completely?
Is there an attraction to things associated with the priesthood?
Do you have a persistent desire to become a priest?
Do ideas of the priesthood keep coming back?
Do you have an admiration for priests you know?
 

If you do, talk to us . . .

 PRAYER TO KNOW ONE’S VOCATION
Lord, my God and my loving Father,
you have made me to know you,
to love you, to serve you,
and thereby to find and to fulfil my deepest longings.
I know that you are in all things,
and that every path can lead me to you.
But of them all,
there is one especially by which you want me to come to you.
Since I will do what you want of me,
I pray you, send your Holy Spirit to me:
into my mind, to show me what you want of me;
into my heart, to give me the determination to do it,
and to do it with all my love,
with all my mind,
and with all of my strength right to the end.
Jesus, I trust in you. Amen

 

PRAYER FOR RELIGIOUS VOCATIONS
Constantly provide your church, O Lord, with Holy Apostles
And never leave your flock unattended.
Lord Jesus, your promised to be with us until the end of time.

Send us holy men and women
who will dedicate their whole lives for the work of the kingdom;
send us powerful preachers of the gospel;
provide us with dedicated religious educators;
and never leave your church wanting in every age and time.
Praise and thanksgiving to you at every moment ….
Glory and praise to the most Holy and Divine Sacrament.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning is now and will be for ever. Amen.

Constantly provide your church, O Lord, with Holy Apostles
And never leave your flock unattended.

Lord Jesus Christ,
you promised always to give your Church shepherds.
In faith, we know your promise cannot fail.
Trusting in the power of the Holy Spirit at work in the Church,
we pray you raise up sacred ministers from your holy people,
that the sacrifice in which you give your body and blood
may be daily renewed in the world until we come to that kingdom
where you live with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

 

PANGAMUYO PARA SA BOKASYON
O Mahigugmaon kag langitnon nga Amay,
nagaampo kami nga Imo ipadala sa Imo Santa Iglesya
ang balaan nga mga pari, relihiyoso kag misyonero,
sa pagpakabalaan sang Imo katawohan.
Ibugay sa madamo nga mga pamatan-on
ang nagaka-igo nga grasya sa pagkilala
sang matahum nga kahulugan sang kabuhi nga nahalad sa Dios.
Himoa sila nga maalwan kag handa sa pagsabat
sang Imo panawagan sa pag-alagad sa Santa Iglesya
kag sa pagbantala sang maayong balita
nga may himpit nga pagtuo sa Imo.
Itugot nga tanan kami
magmangin maalwan sa paghalad sang amon kaugalingon
sa pag-alagad sa Imo.
Buligi kami sa pagpamatuod sini
paagi sa amon balaan nga pagkabuhi.
Kabay nga magpadayon kami
nga magma-ukod sa amon pagtuo sa Imo
agod amon mapabatyag ang Imo diosnon nga paghigugma kag kaluoy
sa amon isigkatawo.
Ginapangayo namon ini sa Imo
paagi kay Kristo nga amon Ginoo.  Amen.

O Birhen sang Candelaria, ig-ampo mo kami.
San Hanibal Maria de Francia, ig-ampo mo kami.
