A really cool prayer

I read this last night, and it was such a beautiful prayer that I wanted to share it:

O Lord, I do not know what to ask You. You alone know my real needs, and You love me more than I even know how to love. Enable me to discern my true needs which are hidden from me. I ask for neither a cross nor a consolation, but simply wait in patience for You. My heart is open to You.

For Your great mercy's sake, come to me and help me. Put Your marr on me and heal me, cast me down and raise me up. I silently adore Your hold will and Your inscrutable ways. I offer myself in sacrifice to You and put all my trust in You. I desire only to do Your will. Teach me to pray.

Isn't that nice?
