Prayer for Choosing the State of Life #1

From all eternity, O Lord,

You planned my very existence and my destiny.

You wrapped me in Your love in baptism

and gave me the Faith

to lead me to an eternal life

of happiness with You.

You have showered me with Your graces

and You have been always ready

with Your mercy and forgiveness

when I have fallen.

Now I beg You for the light

I so earnestly need

that I may find the way of life

in which lies the best fulfillment of Your will.

Whatever state this may be,

give me the grace necessary

to embrace it with love of Your holy will,

as devotedly as Your Blessed Mother did Your will.

I offer myself to You now,

trusting in Your wisdom and love

to direct me in working out my salvation

and in helping others

to know and come close to You,

so that I may find my reward

in union with You for ever and ever.

Amen.
