Readings for today’s Mass
Maybe we don’t know what we want from prayer; what our prayer should be like. But God knows of our desire to pray. What is in our heart counts for a lot, even when we have difficulty expressing it. Next time you find yourself struggling with prayer, trust what is in your heart; and let God take care of the rest.
Spend some time with this poem from Thomas Merton. He's been there too.
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
that 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 that 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 will never leave me
to face my perils alone.
