Prayer for Vocation Guidance


Your living waters flow within me.
They nourish my love for your Word.
They inspire me to follow your Son and pour out my life for others.

I am ready to further your mission. Help me find the best way to share my gifts
in service to you. Giving you glory will be my greatest joy.

In all that I do, may I proclaim your truth and give witness to your love. I trust that you will be ever present—coursing through me and quenching my thirst for your justice and mercy. May I forever be worthy of your life-giving call.

Oración para la Orientación en la Vocación


Tus aguas de vida fluyen en mi interior.
Ellas nutren mi amor por tu Palabra.
Ellas me inspiran para seguir a tu Hijo y derramar mi vida para los demás.

Estoy listo para cumplir tu misión. Ayúdame a encontrar la mejor forma de compartir mis donespara servirte. Darte gloria será mi mayor satisfacción.

En todo lo que hago, que yo proclame tu verdad y dé testimonio de tu amor. Confío en que estarás siempre presente—fluyendo en mi y saciando mi sed de tu justicia y misericordia. Que siempre sea yo digno de tu vital llamado.


LORD, help me to wake up the world, and be a witness of a different way of living.

SEÑOR, ayúdame a despertar al mundo, y ser testigo de una manera diferente de vivir.

SEIGNEUR aide-moi à me réveille le monde, et d'être témoin d’un mode de vie différent.


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

BENDICE a la juventud con el don de la valentía para que respondan a tu llamado. Abre sus corazones a grandes ideales y a grandes cosas.

INSPIRA a todos tus discípulos al amor 
y servicio mutuo—Para que florezcan vocaciones en la tierra fértil de tu pueblo fiel.

INCULCA en los que viven la vida religiosa, sirven en ministerios parroquiales y nuestras familias, la confianza y la gracia de invitar a otros a abrazar el camino audaz y noble de una vida consagrada a Ti.

ÚNENOS a Jesús a través de la oración y los sacramentos para poder cooperar contigo en la construcción del Reino de la misericordia, de la verdad, de la justicia y de la paz. Amén.

GO FORTH! Remember the beauty of your
first call. Jesus continues to call you today
with the same full love and untamed grace.

GO FORTH! There is always more to do, to
encounter, to be grateful for, to be astonished
by. Begin and end with the joy of prayer—the
marrow of consecrated life.

GO FORTH! Each of us has a role to play in
the Church. Witness and sow well each day,
and look to tomorrow with hope.

GO FORTH! Grow in love for God so that
others will be attracted by the divine light
in you. Welcome the new vocations the Lord
sends to continue the work of consecration.

We ask this through the intercession of Mary,
Mother of God and first disciple of her son,
Jesus, our Lord. Amen.

— Pope Francis
