A Prayer from Thomas Merton

My Lord, God,

I have no idea where I am going.

I do not know for certain where it will end.

Nor do I really know myself,

and the fact that I think that I am following Your will

does not mean that I am actually doing so.

But I believe that the desire to please You does, in fact, please You.

And I hope that I have that desire in all that I am doing.

I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.

and I know that if I do this, You will lead me by the right road,

though I may know nothing about it.

Therefore will I trust You always

though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death.

I will not fear, for You are ever with me,

and You will never leave me to face my perils alone.




Via Padre Steve
