Lord of the Harvest,

Bless young people with the gift of courage to respond to your call.  Open their hearts to great ideals, to great things. 

Inspire all of your disciples to mutual love and giving for vocations blossom in the good soil of faithful people.  

Instill those in religious life, parish ministries, and families with the confidence and grace to invite others to embrace the bold and noble path of a life consecrated to you. 

Unite us to Jesus through prayer and sacrament, so that we may cooperate with you in building your reign of mercy and truth, of justice and peace.  Amen

~ Pope Francis, Adapted from the message on the 51st World Day of Prayer for Vocations
