God our Father,
You made each of us
to use our gifts in the Body of Christ.
We ask that You inspire
young people whom You call to
the priesthood and consecrated life
to courageously follow Your will.
Send workers into Your great harvest
so that the Gospel is preached,
the poor are served with love,
the suffering are comforted,
and Your people are strengthened
by the sacraments.
We ask this through
Christ our Lord.
"Lord, if it is you, bid me come to you on the water."
- Matthew 14:28
