Prayers for the identification of one's calling?

I’m 16 years old and will soon have to make a decision as to my future career.

I feel God’s calling me to be a priest, however I’m not quite sure exactly what he wants me to be. Perhaps my arrogance is the problem, believing God wants me to do something ‘greater’ or more ‘important’, though of course nothing supersedes following God’s plan for you exactly.

So, I’m wondering is there any prayers that would be particularly effective for guidance/confirmation.

Thanks in advance. :slight_smile:

Here’s one;

And one to St Joseph:


Praying to the Holy Spirit to give you guidance & direction in your career choice.

Thanks! :slight_smile:


I too have felt the calling from God to become a priest, although I too am searching for prayers.
