Talking A prayer to share

I really liked this and wanted to share it.

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 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 ead 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

Thanks for sharing - sounds like a great song.
Maybe Third Day could put it to music!
