a prayer needed

I just turned in my application packet for seminary, please pray for me that I will be given the peace , calmness, and patience for the road ahead.

To say the least, it has caused me anxiety putting my life down on paper for complete strangers to digest and have in their hands …

Through the intercession of St Ignatius of Loyola, Lord grant grace and comfort to John in this earthly pilgrimage. Lend him mighty angels alway, as well as to those reviewing his credentials. May your will be done to the joy of all involved. Mary, pray with us. Amen.

Eternal Father, Jesus said “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” We ask at this time on behalf of your seeking servant who is knocking on your door to grant his petitions for peace, calmness and patience so that he may be all the more successful in knowing, teaching and following your will.

In Jesus’ name we pray Amen


***Hail Mary,
Full of Grace,
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb,
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.



Mother Mary, please make your intentions in this matter come true.

Hail Mary…


Praying for you John

qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy,
our life, our sweetness, and our hope.
To you do we cry, poor banished children of Eve;
to you do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.
Turn, then, most gracious advocate,
your eyes of mercy toward us;
And after this our exile,
show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.
O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary. Amen.

Holy Mother, please intercede for us.
Aid those needing help, hold the sorrowful,
strengthen the fearful,
comfort those who are sick, in pain or suffering,
be with those needing peace, console the lonely,
assist the lost or hopeless, guard the unborn,
pray for those who are dying or who have died,
protect those in danger, guide us from evil;
may all who keep your sacred commemoration
experience the might of your assistance.
