Prayer

Some reflections and prayers to help you discern how God is calling you.

Meditation by Cardinal John Henry Newman

God, you have created me to do you some definite service: You have committed some work to me which you have not committed to another. I have my mission – I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told in the next. Somehow I am necessary for your purposes. I have a part in the great work; I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for nothing. I shall do good, I shall do his work; I shall be an angel of peace, A preacher of truth in my own place. Fulfill your high purposes in me, I am here to serve you, to be yours.

Amen.

Prayer for Discernment

Loving Father, You have blessed me with wonderful gifts. Through baptism I am member of Christ's Body the Church, and share in its mission of proclaiming the Gospel and becoming a Holy People. Keep my heart open to following Jesus' way of serving others in love and to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.
