Today Haddon Robinson shared with us a prayer that has been on his desk for the past few years.  It is Thomas Merton’s prayer from “Leading Lives That Matter.”

“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 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 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.”

Enough said!
