Offering Prayer of The Sick For Vocations

Dear Lord, here is a new day You have given me in which to love You and to help others to love You. Above all things, help me to love and accept Your holy will. Lord Jesus, in giving me this cross of my illness, it was your desire to bring me nearer to Your Divine Heart. I want to bring others also to know You better, to love You more, and for this I know that good and holy priests are necessary; so I will offer my cross, united with Yours, for vocations to the holy priesthood. Amen.

Teach me, O Lord, to do Your will, for You are my God. Keep me, Lord, as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings. O Lord, remember not against us the iniquities of the past; may Your compassion quickly come to us. Amen.

Don’t forget to pray for all our priest, deacons, religious, and all of those who serve the laity.
