This morning's reflection from the Curate is on Exodus 16:2-15.

Here is the text of the prayer that I read at the end, from Thomas Merton's Thoughts in Solitude.

My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going   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
