We are grateful for your prayers for the advancement of our work in Britain and around the world.
In particular your prayers are requested for vocations.
Lord Jesus, your harvest is still great.
Many are still in need of your word.
Many hunger and thirst for the justice of the Kingdom.
Call labourers into your Society
to gather this harvest in your companionship.
Grant many the courage to follow you,
and the grace to share your love.
Loving Father, you call all who believe in you to grow in perfect love
by following in the footsteps of Christ your Son.
May our way of life shine out
as an compelling sign of your Kingdom.
May it attract generous people to your service,
especially in the Society of Jesus.
We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
Lord, you chose Ignatius Loyola, Francis Xavier and Pierre Favre to follow you, and they dedicated their lives to proclaiming your Good News and to the service of your Church. Through the prayers of these humble labourers, we ask you to call more men to the Society of Jesus, with that same spirit of compassion and prayer that motivated the early Companions. May their selfless love and devotion give greater honour and glory to your name, and enable all they meet to find you in all things.
Loving Jesus, if you should choose to call me or one I love to your service, let the response be joyful and without reservation.
