Prayer of the Day A Pilgrim’s Prayer by Thomas Merton

A Pilgrim’s Prayer by Thomas Merton

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 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 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 know nothing about it.
Therefore I will trust you always.
Though I may seem lost 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 have prayed this prayer in the past but it fell off my radar, and predates me keeping my own notebook of prayers. I encountered it again in a book by Matthew Kelly and have started trying to pray it daily.
