August 28th, 2010 : By Matt Temple
I want to share a prayer with you written by Thomas Merton. It is something I meditate on almost daily and God has used it many time to speak to me so I hope it can be as much a blessing to you that it has been to me.
My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me and 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.
I know 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.
I want to challenge you to take the next 15 days and pray that every morning. Don’t just say the words but let it sink into you deeply and see if maybe God will speak to you through it.
