A Prayer for Life.

Lord, make me a better person, more considerate towards                                                                                                                         others, more honest with myself, more faithful to you.

Make me generous enough to want sincerely to do your will whatever it may be.

Help me to find my true vocation in life, and grant that through it I may find happiness for myself and bring happiness to others.

Grant Lord, that those whom you call to enter the priesthood or religious life may have the generosity to answer your call.

We ask this through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
