|Prayer for Vocations|
Roman Catholic Diocese of Raleigh
Please Pray for Our Seminarians by Name
Father, in your plan for our salvation
you provide shepherds for your people.
Fill your Church with the spirit
of courage and love.
Give the Church more priests,
worthy ministers for your altars and ardent
but gentle servants of the gospel.
Grant also to us an increase
in vocations to the religious life.
May more of your people respond to your call
in a spirit of joyful generosity.
May they serve your people in love
by following in the footsteps of Christ your Son
and provide by their way of life
a convincing sign of your kingdom.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us.
