Elijah Cup Prayer


Gracious and loving God,

Help the men and women of our parish to hear the call to serve your Church.

Our needs are great and our people thirst for your presence.

Open the hearts of many,

Raise up faithful servants of the Gospel,

Dedicated holy priests, sisters, brothers, and deacons,

Who will spend themselves for your people and their needs.

Bless those who are serving now with courage and perseverance.

Grant that many will be inspired by their example and faith

We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
