31 Days of Prayer – Prayer for Vocations

Praying for vocations are near and dear to my heart. As some of you may know, I spent a number of years discerning a religious vocation with the Little Sisters of the Poor. Even though I do not have a vocation, spending time with those sisters was one the best things I’ve ever done. I learned so much about my faith, myself and others. Seriously, sometimes I think everyone should go through a noviate!

Thus, as our month of prayer comes to a close, I think it is fitting and proper to pray for vocations. We need holy priests, brothers, and sisters in the Church!

This prayer for vocations comes from the USCCB website:

Loving God, you call all who believe in you to grow perfect in love by following in the footsteps of Christ your Son. Call from among us more men and women who will serve you as religious. By their way of life, may they provide a convincing sign of your Kingdom for the Church and the whole world. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

In your prayers for vocations, don’t forget that marriage is a vocation, and so is the single life. We need to pray for holy and faithful marriages. We also need single lay faithful who are called to serve the church in various capacities! May the Lord send workers into His harvest!
