Suggestions for Prayers

Today is Vocations Sunday, when we are encouraged to think and pray about God’s Calling to each one of us; to have the desire and courage to share with others what we believe God calls us to be doing. Pray we may recognise that each one of us is called, whether it is to be ordained, to nurse, to teach, or to respond to God’s Call to live out and share our faith in the community, as we  work, study, relax, or simply chat or listen to someone in need – be it in the café, restaurant or pub.
