SERRA PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
O God, Who wills not the death of a sinner
but rather that he be converted and live
grant we beseech you
through the intercession of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin
Saint Joseph, her spouse, Blessed Junipero Serra and all the saints
an increase of laborers for Your Church
fellow laborers with Christ to spend and consume themselves for souls
through the same Jesus Christ Your Son
Who lives and reigns with You
In the unity of the Holy Spirit
One God forever and ever.
Lord Jesus, Son of the Eternal Father and Mary Immaculate Give to our young people the generosity necessary to Follow Your call and the courage to overcome all Obstacles to their vocation in life.
Give to parents that faith, love, and spirit of sacrifice Which will inspire them to offer their children to God’s service and to rejoice whenever one of Their children is called to the priesthood or the religious life.
Let your example and that of our Blessed Mother and St Joseph encourage both young people and parents, and let Your grace sustain them.
