Again we pray to You, All bountiful and loving God, to open the hearts and minds of the men and women of our parish family to hear the call of our Lord to the priestly and monastic life in service to our Holy Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA, dedicated to the Holy Gospel and the salvation of our souls. Hear us, O Lord, and have mercy.
Again we pray to You, O Lord our God, hear us in our great need and our thirst for Your presence. As You have said, the harvest is indeed great but the laborers are few and we pray that You will open the hearts of many to a desire to bring in the harvest. [Send us] dedicated, holy priests, deacons, and monastics who, in following You example, will serve Your people and satisfy their spiritual needs. Hear us, O Lord and have mercy.
Again we pray most fervently, O Lord, asking that You bless those who now serve in the clergy ranks of our Holy Church with courage, perseverance, and sound faith. Grant that others will be inspired by their example, their service founded on love, and their sacrifice, to take up Your Cross and follow You. Hear us, O Lord, and have mercy.
