Pray for Vocations

“ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.” – Matthew 9:38

Prayer is the primary means of supporting a culture of vocations.

It is open to everyone – from the child lisping her first prayers, to the seasoned “prayer warrior,” from the active and able-bodied, to the infirm and bed-ridden. Prayerful intercession lifts up both those discerning their vocation so that they may answer God’s call and those already living out their vocation so that they may be faithful in it.

Here are some practical suggestions for participating in our culture of vocations through prayer:

  • Incorporate a simple prayer for vocations into your daily prayer routine.
  • As Bishop Daly recommends, when you pray the Rosary, add a “Sixth Decade” and offer it for vocations to the priesthood and religious life in our diocese.
  • On Thursdays, the day we associate with Christ’s institution of the priesthood at the Last Supper, fast or offer a small sacrifice for vocations.
  • Join our Spokane Vocations Prayer Chain!
