A prayer for new vocations

We've been reciting this prayer at Vespers every night:

Lord our God,
through your loving kindness,
hear and answer our prayers
as they rise to You in this offering.

Through Your saints, Benedict and Scholastica,
You have called many to the school of Your service.
We ask that many other men and women,
throughout the world,
would hear and answer Your call
in our monastic way of life,
especially here at St. Gregory's Abbey.

Grant each of us the gift of holy perserverance --
that we may prefer nothing to Your love.
This we ask through Christ our Lord. Amen.
