Prayer to know God’s Will

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.

Believing that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.

I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you.

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.

I believe that if I do this, you will lead me by the right road,

though I may not know it.

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 ever with me,

and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.
