Please pray for me.

I have been discerning the priesthood for a long time now and my vocation director encouraged me to start the application process for the seminary. Please, I ask for your prayers so that God’s Will be done. That I may follow His and only His path. May the Lord bless you.

[INDENT]Prayer For Vocations

Heavenly Father, Your divine Son taught us to pray to the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into His vineyard. We earnestly beg You to bless our world with many priests and religious men and women who will love You fervently, and gladly and courageously spend their lives in service to Your Son’s Church under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. We pray that their lives may be always centered on our Eucharistic Lord; that they be always faithful to the Holy Father; and that they may be devoted sons and daughters of Mary, our Mother, in making You known and loved; and that all may attain Heaven. Bless our families and our children and choose from our homes those whom You desire for this holy work. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

O Divine Infant of Prague, dearest Jesus,
You Who so lovingly said: “Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and you shall find;
knock, and it shall be opened to you,”
have mercy on me now and
through the intercession of our most holy Mother,
I humbly ask You to grant me the grace I need.

O Divine Infant of Prague, dearest Jesus,
You Who so compassionately taught:
“If you believe,
all things are possible to him who believes,”
have pity on me now, I do believe;
help me. Increase my weak faith
and through the Blessed Mother’s intercession,
I humbly ask You to answer my request.

O Divine Infant of Prague, dearest Jesus,
You Who once benignly said to the apostles:
“If you have faith even like a mustard seed,
You will say to this mulberry tree,
‘Be uprooted and be planted in the sea’,
And it will obey you”,
hear my suppliant prayer,
I humbly beseech You,
And through the intercession of Mary most holy,
I feel certain that my prayer will be answered.

Amen.

:gopray2:

Father, Miguel knows You love him and have plans for him.
But sometimes he is overwhelmed by the thought
of his future. Show him how to walk forward, one
day at a time. May he take heart while he searches
openly, learns all about the choices, listens to others
for advice, and pays attention to his own feelings.
By doing these things, may he hear Your call to live
a life that will let him love as only he can, and allow
him to serve others with the special gifts You have
given him.
Amen

Remembering you in my daily prayers. God bless! :slight_smile:
