Prayer for Discernment

November 15, 2012

Father in Heaven,
I know you love me
And are calling me to Choose Life!
But sometimes I am overwhelmed
by the thought of my future.
It’s scary

Help me to listen to your call
in all the ways you speak to me:
Through prayer and the Scriptures,
through the Church
and the circumstances of my life,
through those who love and care for me,
and especially through my own hopes and desires.

Guide me to search openly and learn about life’s choices,
so that I may respond generously to your call,
and choose the vocation that will enable me to love wholeheartedly,
and serve others with the special gifts you have given me.

Father, I thank you for your love
and for all the promise
that your gift of life holds for me.
Amen.
