Prayer for Seminarians

I was clearing out a drawer the other day and came across this prayer for seminarians. It was put out by the vocation office of the Diocese of Springfield, MA. You can visit their website and find out more about vocations to the religious life at www.myvocation.org.

Lord Jesus, our Loving Savior, look kindly upon those who have embarked on the road towards the priesthood. Show them your love, and guide them on a path of wisdom and learning which will enable them to fulfill your call to shepherd your people as priests. 

Help them through the difficult and challenging times when they face important decisions of choice. Do not abandon them, but may your Holy Spirit always be near to give inspiration and strength.

We ask, Lord, that you keep them safe from all dangers of body and soul. May they grow in a spirit of holiness and justice each day, and may zeal for souls lead them to perseverance in their calling. Amen.
