Prayer for Consecrated Life

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
