Prayer by Thomas Merton

 Prayer by Thomas Merton

(We felt this was an appropriate prayer on the eve of the US Presidential Elections)

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.
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.

From: 'Thoughts in Solitude'
