I am Looking For:

Prayer of a Single Person

Eternal God,

from my mother's womb

you have known and loved me

more than I can ever know.

I ask for the courage to live a holy life,

that your hand guide my decisions

and that your mercy be extended

when I seek my own glory instead of yours.

I ask for the wisdom to know your will for me,

and like our Blessed Mother,

I ask for the strength to say yes.

May I find you in every person I meet, and may my life so shine forth

your goodness and love

that each person may be led to you

through Jesus, your Son,

who is Lord, forever and ever. Amen.
