Prayer for Discernment

“A wise man by hearing them will advance in learning, an intelligent man will gain sound guidance.” Proverbs 1:5

Could you please join me in praying for discernment? (Sorry, can’t go into details.) Our family is in need of the Lord’s guidance in regards to a specific situation. I (we) truly want to do God’s will in this matter and not make the wrong decision. Thank you so much in advance. :)

Discernment Prayer of Thomas Merton

“O 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 that 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 to please You. 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 make my journey alone.”
