Prayer For Vocations



Spirit of eternal Love,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son,

we thank You for all the vocations

of apostles and saints which have enriched the Church.

Continue, we pray, this work of Yours.

Remember when, at Pentecost,

You descended on the Apostles gathered together in prayer

with Mary, the mother of Jesus,

and look upon your Church which today has

particular need of holy priests,

of faithful and authoritative witnesses of your grace;

she needs consecrated men and women,

who show the joy of those who live only for the Father,

who  make their own the mission and the offering of Christ,

who build up in charity the new world.

Holy Spirit, eternal Spring of joy and peace,

it is You who open the heart and the mind to the divine call;

It is you who make effective every impetus

towards good, towards truth, towards charity.

Your “inexpressible groans”

rise up to the Father from the heart of the Church,

which suffers and struggles for the Gospel.

open the hearts and minds of young men and women,

so that a new flowering of holy vocation

may show forth the fidelity of your love,

And all may know Christ,

the true light come into the world

to offer to every human being

the sure hope of eternal life. Amen


by Blessed John Paul II

Prayer to Saint Hannibal 

O Saint Hannibal, full of heavenly love

during your life here on earth

you lived faithfully according to the 

interests of the Heart of Jesus.

You followed His Divine command 

to pray for holy vocations to His church

and dedicated your life

for the poor and the little ones.

Intercede for us that we may be blessed 

with an abundance of priestly, religious,

and lay vocations in the church;

Inflame our hearts with your love 

that we may become holy

and edifying modern day

disciples of Christ.

I pray to you to obtain for me

from God the necessary grace

which I ardently desire

(mention your petition/s.

Bless me, O Saint Hannibal

and my family

that we may all live together

in unity, peace, and love.

Grant this through your intercession,

the graces of which your devotees

are in great need.

May all be for Gods glory

and the greater good of our souls,


St. Hannibal pray for us.

Send O Lord, Holy Apostles into Your church.
