@ 4 o’clock
when Jesus called St Andrew in the Gospel.

Priests for Scotland is promoting a new initiative to pray for vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life, called the 4 O’clock Prayer with inspiration from the hour when Jesus called St Andrew in the Gospel.

Lord Jesus, at this hour, you called
Andrew, our
and his companion to be your disciples.

We pray that the men and women of our country may
hear your call to discipleship at this same hour.

May they respond to your call with generosity, confidence and enthusiasm.
Inspired by the example of Mary
may they say ‘yes’ to service in the
the consecrated life and the diaconate,

Mary, Star of the New Evangelism,
pray for us.

Andrew Patron Saint of Scotland,
pray for us.
