Building the Future of Mount Angel Seminary
Prayer for Seminarians
O Lord, we earnestly ask you to bless our seminarians, inspiring them to love you with their
whole minds and hearts and to gladly spend their entire lives serving your Church.
May your power shine out through their humanity. In their afflictions may they never
be crushed; in their doubts, never despair; in persecution, never abandoned. May they be
buoyed by the joy of communion with the Body of Christ.
We pray that you will draw each seminarian nearer to you, as he lives the mystery of your
death and rising. Send him your Spirit, put your word on his lips, and your love in his
heart – that in all things God may be glorified. Amen.
