Discerning a vocation


#1

Please pray for me as I discern a possible call to the priesthood. I am not planning on any formal application until next year, but could use the prayers as I discern if this is what God wants for me.


#2

May the Holy Spirit guide you.

Lord, he is willing, so if You’re calling him to be Your priest, please let him know, and prepare and guide him. This is a little prayer my son wrote with me when he was discerning whater he was called to the priesthood

“Dear Lord, I want to do everything You want me to do, and be everything You want me to be, filled with Your life and love, flowing like a fountain to others as Your holy priest.

Please prepare my mind, my heart my soul, my body, and keep me safe in You.
I give myself to You…

Holy Spirit guide and inspire me always.
Mother, let me delight and comfort you by my life.
Jesus, let Your heart be mine. Let me care for You in all Your little ones.”
