Prayer for those discerning their Vocation
God, I know you love me and are calling me to choose life. But sometimes, I am overwhelmed by the thoughts of my future. Help me to listen to your call, in all the ways you speak to me: through prayer and the scriptures, through the Church and the circumstances of my life, through those who love and care for me, and through my own hopes and desires. Guide me to search openly and learn about life’s choices, so that I may respond generously to your call, and choose the vocation and career that will enable me to love wholeheartedly, and serve others with the special gifts you have given me. God, today, I thank you for your love and for all things, Amen.
Prayer to Discover Your Vocation
Almighty God, You have made me to know you, To love you, and to serve you, And thereby to find and fulfil myself. I know that you are in all things And that every path can lead me to you, But, of them all, there is one path especially By which you want me to come to you. Since I will do what you want of me, I pray you; send your Holy Spirit to me; Into my mind to show me what you want of me; Into my heart to give me the determination to do it, And to do it with all my love, with all my mind, And with all my strength, right to the end. Amen.
