prayer
My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going
I do not see the road ahead of me
I cannot 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 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.

I found this prayer on another friends blog back in december and it really resonated with me, became a touchstone of sorts. And then I ran across it again last night so I thought I would put it up here. I was really encouraged by the last line....Just the fact that God will never leave us to face anything alone. thats Amazing!

by the way i think the prayer was written by thomas merton
