Prayer for the Choice of a State of Life

O my God, Thou who art the God of wisdom and of counsel,

Thou who readest in my heart the sincere will to please Thee alone,

and to govern myself with regard to my choice of a state of life,

entirely in conformity with Thy most holy desire;

grant me, by the intercession of the most blessed Virgin, my Mother,

and of my holy patrons,

especially of Saint Joseph and Saint Aloysius,

the grace to know what state I ought to choose,

and when to embrace it,

so that in it I may be able to pursue and increase Thy glory,

work out my salvation,

and merit that heavenly reward

which Thou hast promised to those who do Thy holy Will.

Amen.
