Vocations: Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life

Please remember all our priests and seminarians of the Diocese of St. Petersburg in your prayers.  Calendars for Priests and Seminarians are provided so that each active priest in our diocese has at least one day each year reserved for him -- along with our future priests (seminarians). Each Wednesday  is designated to pray for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life (vocations for deacons, sisters and brothers).

For more information about vocations, please visit  the Office of Vocations, Diocese of St. Petersburg or the USCCB - United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

 

 

St. John

Pray for Seminarians and for Church Vocations
 

God, our Father, in baptism you call us by name, making us members of your people, the church. We praise You and thank you for Your gifts. Father, we ask You that Your Spirit strengthen us to live in love and service to others, after the example of Your Son, Jesus.

Father, look upon Your church with love and bless Your people with the servants She needs. Choose from our parishes, from our homes, from our schools and colleges, an abundant harvest of dedicated disciples for service in Your church, sisters, brothers, deacons, priests, missionaries.

We pray that those whom you call may never lose awareness of the dignity and need of their vocation. Continue to bless and strengthen those who have already responded to your call.  We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Vocation Trust Prayer

Here I am Lord, standing at the crossroads of my life, The time has come for me to choose the road that leads to you. I hesitate for fear of what lies ahead of me, For I am much afraid of the unknown. Take my hand in Yours and walk with me, for the road is long, And there are no short cuts. I place myself into your hands. You know the way, You are the way. Amen.
