God, gather and turn my thoughts to You.
With You there is Light,
You forget me not.
With You there is Help, 
and with You there is Patience.
I do not understand Your Ways,
But You know the Way for me.
~Prayer by Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945)

Bonhoeffer, German Pastor, Theologian and Writer, was executed by the Gestapo on April 9, 1945, just two weeks before the Allied Forces liberated that concentration camp.

This prayer is also a beautiful prayer song composed by the Taize' Community in Taize', France. See
