Vocation Themed Intercessions for August

    Vocation Themed Prayers of Intercession for the Month of August

    Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (August 7th)

    “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”  Lord, we pray for those whom you are calling to discover the treasure, which is your Word buried in their hearts.  May they seek to answer your call to follow you, as a priest, a deacon or a religious.

    Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time (August 14th)

    Jesus said to his disciples: “I have come to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were blazing already.”  Lord, we pray for vocations.  Enkindle in the hearts of those you are calling to follow you as a priest, deacon or religious, the fire of your love.  May they be ablaze with your love for others.

    Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary time (August 21st)

    Jesus said to them “Try your best to enter by the narrow door” – Lord we pray for those who are discerning whether they are being called by You to live their lives as a priest, a deacon or a religious, that they may be guided by your Holy Spirit.

    Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time (August 28th)

    “The heart of a sensible man will reflect on parables, an attentive ear is the sage’s dream” (Ecclesiasticus 3: 31) Lord, we pray for an increase in vocations, that those whom you call may have an attentive ear and reflect on your Word in their hearts.
