You know what is best for me

newman

O my God, you alone are all-wise and all-knowing! I believe 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 are all-powerful in your protections.

I thank you, with all my heart, that you have taken me out of my own keeping, and have bidden me to put myself in your hands. I can ask nothing better than this, to be in your care – not my own. O my Lord, through your grace, I will follow you wherever you go, and will not lead the way.

I will wait for you for your guidance, and, on obtaining it, I will act 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 perplexity; nor will I complain or fret if I come into any misfortune or anxiety. In all, I will trust in Jesus, the Lord, and my savior.

A prayer of John Henry Newman
