Prayer for Discernment

Heavenly Father I thank you for the wonder of my being, for creating me in your image.
You consecrated me before I was born with plans for a future full of hope. I dearly wish to fulfil these plans because I know that in doing so I will find joy and purpose in my life.
Grant me a discerning heart that I may know how and where to use the gifts you have given me.
 May the Holy Spirit grant me the freedom that I may follow where you lead. Amen.

If you feel God might be calling you to be a Missionary Sister and would like some guidance on exploring your vocation in life, we would be delighted to assist you on your journey.
