(By Thomas Merton)

Dear 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 this:  
I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You. 
I hope I have that desire in everything I do.  
I hope I never persist in 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 at the time. 

Therefore I will trust You always,  
for though I may be lost,
and in the shadow of death,
I will not be afraid, 
because I know You will never leave me to face my troubles all alone.
