Dear God, I have an awareness of my defects of character, yet I too seldom make an honest effort to overcome them. My pride, arrogance, and selfishness are all too often underlying even those actions which may seem wholly good.
Dear Lord, let me, at my core, in my honest, central self, become the person whom you would have me be. Let me be giving without seeking reciprocity. Let me have humility without seeking recognition. Let me be responsible without thought of reward.
Let me revel in seeking and doing your will today. Let me view all with whom I interact as having been personally delivered by you, each a special gift to help me improve my character. Thy will be done.
