THOMAS MERTON PRAYER

(From Thoughts in Solitude)

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 understand myself.

And the fact that I think I am following

Your will does not mean I am actually doing so.

But I believe that the desire to please you

Does in fact please you.

And I hope I have the 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 troubles alone.


Thomas Merton

My motto is I will not let the devil have mine or any soul if I can prevent it, through prayer sacrifice and pain. I will fight the devil tooth and nail till I take my last breath and then fight him from heaven for souls here on earth. Whoever visits this site is automatically prayed for night and day as long as I live God knows who you are. Prayer requests contact:maryshelper1981@gmail.com
