Shine a light upon your people to find their true vocation.
Give them the grace to hear your word and become more like you.
May they answer your call and be an example to others.
Help them to follow the example of Jesus.
We know your way is the best. Please forgive us for trying to ignore your call.
Society has created other things that call us in a more glamorous way, and so we pray that people can recognize the emptiness of that calling.
Help us now Lord to refocus on you and realize a call to serve you is actually an amazing gift. In our love for you, we never wish to dishonor you by refusing such a gift of love.
Help people answer more of your calls.
And if they do they'll make the world a better place.
Bless them, O Lord.
