Prayer for Monastic Vocations
O Lord Jesus Christ, you have told us
to ask and we will receive,
to seek and we will find,
to knock and it will be opened to us.
Attend now to our prayer for monastic vocations,
and for those seek to know your will at a time of discernment in their lives.
St. Benedict, blessed of God,
please ask Our Lord that
those who seek may attain the grace of insight and peace of the Holy Spirit.
May they be open and generous in their response.
O Holy Spirit,
help them to prefer nothing to the love of Christ
and to make the most generous decision possible.
St. Benedict, patron of monks,
pray for all those who are seeking to follow Jesus in this consecrated way.
