O glorious St. Alphonsus Liguori, patron saint of vocations, I come before you asking your intercession for all those discerning a vocation to the priesthood, religious life or the deaconate in particular for (name person).
With the Blessed Virgin Mary ask the Lord to bless the hearts and souls of those whom He has called to be set apart with every gift and grace that they need in order to live their lives in faithful service to Him and the Church.
May they respond generously and promptly, knowing with all their hearts that they are called to Christ.
Pray that they be humble and completely dedicated during their formation, steadfast in their love for Christ and His Church, zealous in their desire for the salvation of souls, and completely obedient to their superiors and the teachings of the Church.
I ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
