Beautiful Prayer

 

fall-autumn-red-seasonLord My God
I have no idea Where I am Going, I Do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain will it will end, Nor do I really know myself.
And the fact that I think I am doing your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.
But I do believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you and I hope I have that desire in all that I do.
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.

Thomas Merton
