a weekend prayer

I like this prayer: Dear God, I have no idea where I m 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 that I am following your will Does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe this: I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. I hope I have that desire in everything I do. I hope I never persist in 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 at the time. Therefore I will trust you always, for thought I may be lost and in the shadow of death I will not be afraid, because I know you will never leave me to face my troubles all alone. (Thomas Merton). May this prayer carry you through the weekend!
