A PRAYER FOR CONFIDENCE IN GOD (By Thomas Merton)

Dear 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 this:
I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You.
I hope I have that desire in everything I do.
I hope I never persist in 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 at the time.

Therefore I will trust You always,
for though I may be lost,
and in the shadow of death,
I will not be afraid,
because I know You will never leave me to face my troubles all alone.

Thanks! You've already liked this
