Prayer For Vocations Lord of the Harvest, we petition you as you have instructed us to ask for more laborers to serve in the vineyard of your Church. You
have told us that the harvest is rich and laborers are few and we experience this great need in the face of the challenge of the New
Evangelization. We ask the Holy Spirit to inspire young men and women to seriously consider vocations to the priesthood
and religious life. Help all of us to be effective instruments to encourage and support those whom you are calling to serve and
lead the Church of Brooklyn and Queens in the future. Lord, you told the Apostles to put out into the deep. We ask for the
grace and courage to respond to your call as we pray and work for an increase in vocations to the priesthood, diaconate and
religious life. We ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Great High Priest, Amen.
Sharing the Gospel Jesus is the Good Shepherd. He wants you to help your family and friends. Jesus wants to guide
you like a shepherd guides the sheep. Do what you can to help others. Bring in a bag of groceries.
Take someone a drink of water. Get a blanket for someone. Or just sit down and listen to a
friend's funny or sad story. Then you will be a good shepherd just like Jesus. Without a good
shepherd to lead them, sheep would get lost. Without a good shepherd to protect them, sheep
would get hurt. A good shepherd would even die, just to keep his sheep safe. Jesus is your good
shepherd, and you are his precious little lamb. When you get lost, Jesus comes to find you. When
you are in danger, Jesus comes to comfort you. Listen to the voice of Jesus. Spend time reading
the Bible every day. He wants to lead you to life with God. He wants to protect you from sin. Je-
sus gave up his life just to save you. Jesus is your good shepherd.
Jesus, show me ways to help my family and friends. Amen.
