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...
the fact that I think 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 do anything
apart from that desire.
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.
I will trust You always
for though I may seem to be lost
and in the shadow of death,
I will not be afraid
I know You
will never leave me
to face my troubles
all alone. Amen

---Thomas Merton
