Pray for us.

Please pray for me to trust in God and find it joyful in the direction which I am about to take. I am an older guy entering seminary and I had never taken any courses in Philosophy and theology before. I enjoy computer programming which requires little of reading and memorizing; therefore, this new step is huge to take … and certainly going back to school is only a small part of this journey.

Please pray also for those who are struggling the same thing.

Many thanks and God bless you very much!

Lord, it is so wonderful that withwind is entering the seminary. May he pray, hope and not worry - as St. Pio tells us to do. Amen.

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

Praying that you suceed…

Hail Mary,
full of grace,
the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the Fruit Of Thy Womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary,
Mother of God,
pray for us sinners now,
and at the hour of our death.
Amen

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy;
our life, our sweetness and our hope. To
thee do we cry, poor banished children of
Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs,
mourning and weeping in this vale of tears.
Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine
eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our
exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy
womb, Jesus, O clement, O loving, O sweet
Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O holy Mother of
God that we may be made worthy of the
promises of Christ. Amen.

Father, thank You for blessing us with teachers who are so eacher to seek after and follow Your will and bless them as they seek to please You in all that they do. In all things, Lord, let Your will be done.

Jesus You haved him. Please help him (and anyone whom You call) to quickly develop those parts of his brain that will help him to absorb, enjoy, and retain all that he must to answer Your call and to minister as You desire. Please help him (and them) on his journey to priesthood, both spiritually and humanly.
Thank You, Jesus

“Dear God, please help me to abide by your will, so that my life, which was Your gift to me, may be my gift to you. Love, …” My youngest son’s prayer when he was 14.

My middle son wrote this at 12. He wanted to be a priest.

“Jesus, 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. I know You accept me.
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.”

(My eldest son didn’t write a prayer. He just said, "Mummy, could you please ask our Lady to always keep a spiritual rose in front of her for me,
and a spiritual candle burning in front of her for me.)

I know this isn’t what you were asking for but while scrolling through my journal and coming on these prayers of my young sons, I thought of you.

And since I’m going down memory lane, and in Lent 1980 I found I had a vocation to pray for priests, and I’m doubtless older than you, I’ll pray for you this prayer I wrote for my eldest on his tenth birthday,

Our Father, my son, Your gift to me, I give to You
May he belong to You his whole life through.

Within his soul Your Spirit already shows,
May your power within him deepen as he grows.

Let his life be lived according to Your plan,
To follow Your will as boy as youth as man.

Show him Your way of compassion and love and peace,
Let Your goodness and power and love in him increase.

His weaknesses and faults I pray Your heart forgives,
In Your pure sight, perfect his spirit while he lives.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

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

Praying hard.
