Prayer for Seminarians, Postulants, and Novices

Heavenly Father

You called those who would respond to the calling as Priest, Brother and Sister, to prepare themselves for the mission ahead. We pray Lord that You will give them strength through the gifts they received through the Holy Spirit in their Confirmation, to be Images of Christ. Prepare their minds to face the philosophies and teachings that go against Your beloved Son. May they teach the doctrines of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with clarity and determination. Prepare their hearts to face spiritual warfare against Satan and all his minions, so that they may be Spiritual Masters of our Faith. Prepare them to face trials, and even pain of death. Give them strength to save souls for Your glory. These things we pray Father, that You may grant this upon our future priests, and religious, so that they may inspire the youth and young adults of our parish. We pray they become the future priests, brothers, and sisters of Your Kingdom. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen!
