From all eternity, O Lord, You planned my very existence and my destiny. You wrapped me in Your love in baptism
and gave me the Faith
to lead me to an eternal life
with You. You have showered me with Your graces and You have been always ready with Your mercy and forgiveness when I have fallen. Now I beg You for the light I so earnestly need that I may find the way of life
in which lies the best fulfillment of Your will. Whatever state this may be, give me the grace
necessary to embrace it with love of Your holy will, as devotedly as Your Blessed Mother
did Your will. I offer myself to You now, trusting in Your wisdom
and love to direct me in working out my salvation
and in helping others to know and come close to You, so that I may find my reward in union with You for ever and ever. Amen.
