Lord, You formed me in my mother’s womb and have loved me into being.
You have made me to know you, To love you, and to serve you,
And thereby to find and fulfil myself.
Since I will do what you want of me, I ask that you send your Holy Spirit to me;
that I may discern what you want of me
and that I may have the courage to follow the path you are calling me to follow
And to follow it with all my love, with all my mind,
And with all my strength, right to the end. Amen.
