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 ever with me, and You will never leave me to face my perils alone.

Amen.
