Not many of us will have that “calling” to serve God as a priest or a nun. But sometimes if we have been called to a life of vocation, we tend to doubt God’s voice.
Even Pope Francis himself did not hear God’s calling immediately. But when he finally did, the Holy Father responded and served God will all his heart. So if you are hearing God’s voice calling you to a life of serving him but on edge on whether to respond to it or not, here is a prayer to help you.
A Prayer To Discern A Vocation
Lord, my God and my loving Father, you have made me to know you, to love you, to serve you, and thereby to find and to fulfill my deepest longings. I know that you are in all things, and that every path can lead me to you.
But of them all, there is one especially by which you want me to come to you. Since I will do what you want of me, I pray you, send your Holy Spirit to me: into my mind, to show me what you want of me; into my heart, to give me the determination to do it, and to do it with all my love, with all my mind, and with all of my strength right to the end. Jesus, I trust in you. Amen
Prayer from USCCB.
