Merton's Prayer

In today's church service, Pastor Watts shared this following prayer. It really spoke to me, where I am with graduation and life -- but continually trusting in God no matter where the unpredictable path may lead in our lives. ¡Bendiciones!

"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 that
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 lead me
by the right road though 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."
