Prayer for Seminarians and Those Discerning a Vocation; Also, Pray for Those Older Men Who May Be Called

from Papa Stronsay website

Please pray for seminarians everywhere. Also, pray for those men who feel or even discern they have a vocation, are older, and may not know what to do. I know several single, prayerful older men who thought of the priesthood years ago but never pursued the vocation. Pray for them.  Pray for women to see the beauty of the traditional orders.

Prayer of Blessed John Paul II for Vocations to the Priesthood and Nuns, for All Dioceses and Orders
Lord Jesus, as You once called the first disciples to make them fishers of men, let your sweet invitation continue to resound: Come follow Me!
Give young men and women the grace of responding quickly to your voice. Support our bishops, priests and consecrated people in their apostolic labor.
Grant perseverance to our seminarians and to all those who are carrying out the ideal of a life totally consecrated to your service.
Awaken in our community a missionary eagerness. Lord, SEND WORKERS TO YOUR HARVEST and do not allow humanity to be lost for the lack of pastors, missionaries and people dedicated to the cause of the Gospel.
Mary, Mother of the Church, the model of every vocation, help us to say “yes” to the Lord who calls us to cooperate in the divine plan of salvation.
The Church is in dire need of workers for the harvest. Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he send forth labourers into his harvest. Matthew 9:38
