Vocation Prayer #2

Gracious God,
you have called me to life and gifted me in many ways.
Through Baptism, you have sent me to continue
the mission of Jesus by sharing my love with others.
Strengthen me to respond to your Call each day.
Help me to become all you desire of me.
Inspire me to make a difference in others’ lives.
Lead me to choose the way of life you have planned for me.
Open the hearts of all to listen to your Call.
Fill all with your Holy Spirit
that we may have listening hearts
and the courage to respond to you.
Enkindle in my heart and the hearts of others the desire
to make the world a better place
by serving as a lay minister, sister, priest, brother, or deacon.
Amen.
