Peace for your Path...

"peace. it does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. it means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart." (unknown)

today is The National Day of Prayer

A Prayer by Thomas Merton in honor of today: The National Day of Prayer

My Lord God
I have no idea of 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 actually am 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 to be lost and in the shadow of death, I
will not fear for you are with me and you will
never leave me, to face my perils alone.


----Thomas Merton
