A prayer of resignation to God's will - 21.04.2011

I BELIEVE, my Saviour, that you know just what is best for me. I believe that you love me better than I love myself, that you are all-wise in your Providence, and all-powerful in your protection. My Lord, I will wait on you for your guidance, and, on obtaining it, I will act upon it in simplicity and without fear. And I promise that I will not be impatient, if at any time I am kept by you in darkness and complexity; nor will I ever complain or fret if I come into any misfortune or anxiety.

(Blessed John Henry Newman)
