A Prayer for Guidance

About 6 month ago, a dear friend and mentor, Dr. Steve Sweatman, took a photo of this prayer he was using as a bookmark.  It was relevant to a life transition Pandora and I are navigating.  Enjoy.

A PRAYER FOR GUIDANCE author unknown

 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 to be lost and in the shadow of death.  

I will not fear for you are every with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.  

Amen
