Novena for Deacons
Pray for Deacons through the
intercession of St. Lawrence
St. Lawrence, Patron Saint of Deacons
Feast Day: August 10
Almighty and eternal God, in your unfailing love, you never cease to provide faithful ministers for your people.
Through the intercession of St. Lawrence, we pray for those who are called to serve the Church as deacons.
Open their hearts to follow Your Holy Will for them to serve in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ.
In doing so, may they truly herald your Gospel, not only in word but especially in deed. May their actions make your love known, particularly to those among us who are poor, lost and forgotten, sick and suffering, and most in need.
Bless with courage and perseverance those who serve you as deacons. Grant that many people will be inspired by their example and their faith. We ask all this through Christ our Lord.
