Lead Us To Healing

A reading for Tuesday, January 31, 2017: Luke 6:17-19.

“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

Lord, touch us and heal us. Lead us and let us gather together in the presence of your power and love others as you have loved us. For we cannot truly be healed without you. In your mercy, Lord Jesus, hear our prayer. Amen.
