Prayer for Vocations

Lord Jesus! O Good Shepherd! You came down on earth to find the lost sheep so that they might be saved and you called the apostles to become fishers of men. We beg you to call enthusiastic young people to become the salt of the earth and the light of the world, to practice the fullness of the Gospel in offering themselves, to work together, to build your Church, the Body of Christ, and to save souls. We humbly ask you to grant those who have been called the grace of wisdom, patience and fortitude, to radiate your glory, to spread your kingdom, and to lead their souls to everlasting life. Amen.
