Prayer for Vocations:
Father, in the power of your Spirit, You send Your Son to bring salvation to all peoples. We pray that You will give that same Spirit to young men and women of our country: So that they, like Jesus, may respond to Your call, and so bring good news to the poor, bind the hearts that are broken, proclaim liberty to captives, and new sight to the blind, and announce that the time has come when the Lord will save His people. And so, Father, open the hearts of our youth, that they may respond, like Mary, with great generosity in bringing Christ to the world in our day. Amen.
