Prayer for vocations to the Carmelite Family


Prayer for vocations to the Carmelite Family, to religious life, and to priesthood


O Lord Jesus Christ, who has said –

“The harvest indeed is great but the labourers are few.

Pray therefore to the Lord of the harvest

that he may send labourers into his harvest” –

grant to members in our society the gift of

a vocation to the religious life and priesthood.

Grant them the grace to accept your invitation and

the strength to fulfil their vocation

that they may do great things for God

and the salvation of the human family.

Call men and women to the Carmelite Family,

both religious and laypeople.

And as all of us are called to be a royal priesthood,

help us work – in whatever way is pleasing to you –

to build up the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen.
