The Perfect Prayer

“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 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 will I 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.” ― Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude

Lending Library

For my regular clients I keep a lending library of books, articles, and handouts pertaining to theology and spirituality. Though I don’t typically “assign” books for people to read, if one comes to mind as particularly helpful to you I may recommend it. If there is a book on spirituality you have been itching to read, don’t buy it! Chances are I have it (:
