Prayers for Vocations


Prayer to Know My Vocation

(prayer from Vianney Vocations)

Lord, I want to be happy in this life and spend eternity with You in the life to come.
From the first moment of my existence, You knew my vocation.
Please help me discover Your plan for my life.
Help me to know myself.
Help me to overcome my fears.
Help me to want what You want.
Help me to trust You completely.
Send Your Holy Spirit into my mind and heart so I can see the gifts You have given me and hear Your call to serve the Church.
Increase my desire to bring others to You and to help them reach heaven.
Mary Most Holy, Mother of God, pray for me, that I can discover my vocation and have the courage to respond in faith.

Parents’ Prayer for Vocations

(prayer from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops)

Gracious and loving God you have blessed us with the privilege of becoming Parents.
We ask that you provide us with all that we need in accepting this awesome responsibility.
We pray that we will be open to your spirit who is our source of strength as we witness to our children your love for each of them and your desire for them to be happy and to live a full life.
We ask your help so we may guide and encourage our children to believe they have a special calling and to use their gifts and talents for others.
We pray, Heavenly Father, that our children will discover and respond enthusiastically to your desire for them whether it be to the vocation of single, married, ordained or consecrated life.
We offer this prayer in the name of Jesus through the grace of the Holy Spirit.
