Third and last Winter Ember Day
Today please pray for vocations to the consecrated religious life and for religious orders. If you would like to know more about life as a consecrated man or woman you might want to explore the Anglican Religious Communities page.
A prayer for vocations to the religious life -
you desire all creation to attain fullness of life.
Stir up the grace of religious vocations
in the hearts of many men and women.
Grant to them the willingness and generosity to respond,
to give their lives, their time and their talents
to the service of Jesus Christ, and to your holy Church.
May more men and women go forth
as priests, deacons, brothers and sisters
to bring the faith to others so that soon they, too,
may know you better and love you more and
in serving you, may find fullness of life. Amen.
