Loving God, you have made me in your image and likeness, and for this I shall praise you forever. Through Baptism you invite me to serve as your Son Jesus served. I offer you this day all that I have and all that I am in union with his saving cross.
Father, in the power of the Spirit, You send us forth to build up Your kingdom. I pray especially for those whom you are calling to serve the church. Help them to hear and answer Your call to discipleship.
The harvest is plenty, but laborers are few. Please provide for us men and women who will help to gather in a great harvest of souls. I make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen.
