Thomas Merton Prayer

Several people have asked for a copy of the prayer Pastor Kevin used in his sermon”The Judge of Faithfulness” ¬†on Sunday, September 2, 2012. The prayer is by Thomas Merton and printed below.

 

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 know myself, and the fact I think that I am knowing 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. 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 lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear for you are with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.
