Prayer for Choosing a State in Life

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.
