Listen to the Lord

As you discern God’s call, continue to turn to him in prayer. Make a commitment to daily prayer and speak to him from the heart. Ask him to help you to be open to whatever he might ask. Be willing to investigate the possibilities as you continue to follow these steps throughout your discernment. Abandon yourself totally to him, and he will guide you. Build your life around God rather than fitting him in. In the words of Mary, “Do whatever he tells you.” (John 2:5).
