O Holy Spirit,
Spirit of wisdom and divine love,
impart Your knowledge, understanding, and counsel
to youth that they may know the vocation
wherein they can best serve God.
Give them courage and strength
to follow God's holy will.
Guide their uncertain steps,
strengthen their resolutions,
shield their chastity,
fashion their minds,
conquer their hearts,
and lead them to the vineyards
where they will labor in God's holy service.
GOD our FATHER,
WHO wills that all men be saved
And come to the knowledge of YOUR Truth:
We beg you to send
Laborers into YOUR harvest,
And grant them grace to speak YOUR Word
With all boldness; so that YOUR Word
May spread and be glorified,
And all nations may know YOU,
The only GOD, and HIM WHOM YOU have sent,
JESUS CHRIST YOUR SON, Our LORD. Amen.
Our Lady, Queen of the Americas,
And Mary, Mother of the
Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word,
Pray for us.
