Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


My heart is restless.

There is much about my life I do not understand.

I do not know myself.

I sense that if I knew myself truly, I would know you.

Give me the grace to rise out of my ignorance and

move through all my unknowing toward you, Jesus,

calling me out of the darkness and death to life.

Lead me to the paradise of your mercy.
