PRAYER FOR SERRA
Oh. Lord, we pray for our own vocation. Give us strength in our faith that we don't fall with difficulties and that we are able to be generous in your service.
Send us. Oh Lord, many active laypersons for the work of Serra for vocations.
Give us a great friendship amongst each other and make your love grow in our hearts so we could help many leave all to follow you.
We beg you, Oh Lord, through Jesus and Mary, Queen of Vocations.
SERRA PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS
Oh God, who wills not the death of a sinner, but rather that he be converted and live. Grant we beseech you through the intercession of the Blessed Mary, ever Virgin, Saint Joseph her spouse, Blessed Junipero Serra and all the saints, an increase of laborers for your Church. Fellow laborers with Christ to spend and consume themselves for souls, through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son. Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever.
PRAYER FOR THE PERSEVERANCE OF VOCATIONS
Oh God. You have constituted Your only begotten Son supreme and eternal Priest for the glory of Your majesty and the salvation of mankind. Grant that those whom He has chosen as ministers and dispensers of His mysteries may be found faithful in fulfilling the ministry they have received.

PRAYER OF PETITION
Oh God, I thank you for the life of Saint Junipero Serra. Moved by Your Spirit he opened his heart to Christ and led the missionary effort which brought our precious faith to San Diego and all of California. Inspired by his faith and generosity may I follow his example in my life, and always share the Good News of Jesus Christ and evangelize my community. Grant me the courage and compassion of Saint Junipero Serra and through his intercession grant the petition I now make:
I offer this prayer in the name of Jesus.
