WEEK 1

Prayer to Discern a Vocation

Lord, there are so many things in my life that I don’t understand,
so many questions about the future that I need to ask.

What is Your plan for me?
What is the work You want me to do?

 

All I really know is that You love me.
Show me the road You want me to walk –
to fulfillment, to happiness, to holiness.

Amen.

Lord, my God and my loving Father, I will do what you want of me.

Send your Holy Spirit to me:

– with all of my strength right to the end.

Jesus, I trust in you.

WEEK 4

Prayer to Discern a Vocation

God, I know You love me and have great plans for me. But sometimes I am overwhelmed by the thought of my future. Show me how to walk forward one day at a time.

May I take heart while I search openly, learn about all the choices, listen to others for advice, and pay attention to my own feelings. By doing these things, may I hear your call to a lifestyle and a career that will let me love as only I can, and let me serve others with the special gifts that You have given me.

Amen
