How to Pray About Your Vocation

"I remember the first time I ever prayed about my vocation — it was only a few years ago. I was kneeling down to pray before daily Mass, and I felt the slightest movement of my heart. In the quiet of the chapel that day, the Lord reminded me of my deepest desires. Then He asked me if, in a particular vocation (I won’t mention which one), they might be fulfilled. I was a little stunned to hear Him ask that — I hadn’t asked for any clarifying signs or answers about vocation; instead, I had recently been praying about the things I wanted to be when I grew up. I had talked with the Lord about what my deepest desires were, offering to Him some desires that I was already aware of, and receiving from Him those He had given me that I hadn’t yet noticed. The Lord took my pursuit of desire and fit it into the call of a particular vocation."
