Lord Jesus, in your wisdom and limitless love you you have planted the seed of service in all of us.We pray at this time you will kindle in the hearts of women the desire to follow you into a consecrated religious life. In the quiet of their discerning give them assurance in answering yes, the peace in their decision.
Give to them whom you call grace to accept their vocation readily and thankfully, to make the wholehearted surrender which you ask of them, and for love of you, to persevere throughout their lives to their eternal life with you.
For their lives surrendered to you for the good of all your church, we pray in petition and in gratitude.
