LORD my God, in you I trusted; save me; rescue me from all who pursue me.” Psalm 7:2

Merton’s Voice: 

If we trust God to act in us, God will act in us. This is how our lives become prophetic. …If we are completely open to the Holy Spirit, then the Spirit will be able to lead us where God wants us to go. Going along that line, our lives will be prophetic.
