A Great Prayer

This is a great prayer for this time in my life:

Jesus Creed » Prayer for Guidance: "A Prayer by Thomas Merton - Thoughts in Solitude

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 meean 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 I will 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."


  1. Dude, now that your my "leadership"... your in my prayer focus. Know that I choose to stand beside you and hold you up. You have joined a great group of people here and we walk with you as you find out where He takes you.

    This road isn't the easiest... but oh the view!!!

  2. Thanks, I really appreciate it.
