I Have No Idea Where I am Going
Sharon Swing, Sibyl Towner and Joan Kelley share thoughts on Tomas Merton's prayer from 'Thoughts in Solitude' that are sure to reflect our own sense of being lost at times.
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 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. Amen
You can find this prayer in this book on Amazon.
