vocation prayer (before college)

Vocation Prayer (Before College):
O my God,
Thou Who art the God of wisdom and of counsel,
Thou Who readest in my heart the sincere will - to please Thee alone,
and to govern myself with regard to my choice of a state of life -
entirely in conformity with Thy most holy desire,
grant me, by the intercession of the most Blessed Virgin, my Mother,
and of my holy patrons -
the grace to know what state I ought to choose;
and when known to embrace it, so that in it
I may be able to pursue and increase Thy glory,
work out my salvation, and merit that heavenly reward
which Thou hast promised to those who do Thy holy Will.
Amen.
