Let me share Pope John Paul II's: Prayer for Vocation

Lord Jesus, you said: "Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send our laborers into his harvest!" Through the intercession of Mary, we pray that the holy mysteries of the Risen Christ and of the Spirit, the Paraclete, may enlighten many generous people to serve with greater readiness.

Grant that in all parts of the Church, the faithful may believe with renewed fervor in the Gospel ideal of the priest completely dedicated to the building up of the Kingdom of GOD. May our young people not be drawn by the things of this world, and instead open their hearts to the loving voice that is calling them. May they be capable of dedicating themselves with undivided heart to Christ and his Church. May they believe that divine grace gives them the strength, to make this gift, and that they may see the beauty and greatness of the priestly, religious, and missionary life. Lord, may Christian families succeed in creating an environment favorable to the important religious choices of their children. May priest and religious be an example and encouragement to those who have been called by their availability and humble readiness to accept the gifts of the Holy Spirit and to transmit to others the fruits of love and peace. Amen.
