Make your prayer for vocations even more efficient through our global prayer network, the 5,000-strong Confraternity of St Peter: https://www.fssp.org/en/help-us/confraternity-of-saint-peter/

Following a decade of the Rosary, members of the Confraternity pray the following (and non-members are most welcome to pray it too):

V. Remember, O Lord, Thy congregation.
R. Which Thou hast possessed from the beginning.

Let us pray.
O Lord Jesus, born to give testimony to the Truth, Thou who lovest unto the end those whom Thou hast chosen, kindly hear our prayers for our pastors.
Thou who knowest all things, knowest that they love Thee and can do all things in Thee who strengthenest them.
Sanctify them in Truth. Pour into them, we beseech Thee, the Spirit whom Thou didst give to Thy apostles, who would make them, in all things, like unto Thee.
Receive the homage of love which they offer up to Thee, who hast graciously received the threefold confession of Peter.
And so that a pure oblation may everywhere be offered without ceasing unto the Most Holy Trinity, graciously enrich their number and keep them in Thy love, who art one with the Father and the Holy Ghost, to whom be glory and honour forever.

This prayer for vocations (left) is available on the Confraternity webpage in English, Latin, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Polish.
