Prayers for Vocations

Serran 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, Saint Junipero Serra, and all the saints, an increase of labourers for your Church, fellow labourers 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, God forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer for the Perseverance of Vocations

O God, You have constituted Your only-begotten Son supreme and eternal Priest for the glory of Your majesty and the salvation of mankind: grant that those whom He has chosen ministers and dispensers of his mysteries may be found faithful in fulfilling the ministry they have received.

Prayer of Intercession of Saint Junipero Serra

Father of Mercy,
Send forth Your Life-Giving Spirit upon Your Church and inspire the souls You have chosen to follow in the footsteps of Saint Junipero Serra to walk with boldness and courage in the ways of holiness and service. May Our Lady, Mother of Vocations, Star of the sea and Mother of the New Evangelisation, secure from on high the many graces we need to foster happy and healthy vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life. We ask this in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, who is Lord forever and ever,

Prayer for Serrans

O Lord, we pray for our own vocation: give us strength in our faith so that we do not fall with difficulties and are able to be generous in Your service. Send us, O Lord, many active laypersons for the work of Serra for Vocations. Grant us a great friendship among each other, and make Your love grow in our hearts, so that we may help many to leave all and follow You. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
