Prayer for Vocations.
Holy Spirit, Spirit of wisdom and divine love, impart your knowledge, understanding and counsel to youth that they may know the vocation wherein they can best serve God. Give them courage and strength to follow God’s holy will. Guide their uncertain steps, strengthen their resolutions, fashion their minds, conquer their hearts, and lead them to the vineyards where they will labour in God’s holy service. Amen
