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 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.

-Thomas Merton

    You know this really hits the spot.tonight I was just feeling depressed and out of it, but I went on line looking for a distraction and found this prayer. It was my thoughts exactly.This had to be from God.

  • Personally, I have that thought many times in the past when all things are falling down and even myself really feels down. I had though that all the people hates me and it hurts me of course. But of course after I prayed to Him and cried all out, He made me realize that I am just the one thinking of it.
