God, Our Father,
Thank you for your son, Jesus, our Good Shepherd,
who leads us to fullness of life.
By our baptism, we are called by name to continue the mission of Jesus.
Give us the grace to listen with an open heart
to the voice of Jesus and to respond generously with a joyful spirit.
Strengthen the men and women you called
to serve through marriage, the single life, the diaconate,
priesthood and consecrated life.
Guide all who are discerning their Christian vocation.
In gratitude we offer this prayer through Jesus and the Holy Spirit,
united with you forever.
