Feast of Saint Nicholas-Prayer for Vocations
Feast of Saint Nicholas
Almighty and eternal God, in your unfailing love you provide ministers for your Church.
We pray for those whom you may call
to serve as Capuchin Franciscans friars.
Inspire in them a generous response.
Grant them courage and vision to
serve your people.
May their lives and service call your
people to respond to the presence
of your Spirit among us that, faithful to the Gospel and hope of Jesus the Christ, we may: announce glad tidings to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives, set prisoners free and renew the face of the earth.
Lord God, as you led St. Nicholas to feed your sheep by his word, and guide them by his example, give us grace to keep the faith which he taught, and to follow in his footsteps: through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
