Thomas Merton's Prayer

This has always been one of my favorite prayers. I love the idea of being led by the right road, although I may know nothing about it. That God is working the best for those who desire to serve and please God ... even though we may not see it at first, and that we'll be led by the right road, even if we don't see it.

+ Kit

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 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 that I have that desire in all that I am doing.

And I know that if I do this, you will lead me by the right road although 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. AMEN.
