Dear God, I am worried and frightened this morning. I am scheduled to give a presentation. Have I prepared enough? I am so fearful of what people will think and how they will respond.

Lord, these fears are born of self-sufficiency. I incorrectly see the task as putting on a performance. But I have learned that the proper way to see my role is as a helper. How can I try to be a source of aid and comfort to those around me?

Lord, take away this focus on my self. Let me look outward, seeking how best I can be of service. My comfort doesn’t matter. My fearfulness doesn’t matter. All that matters is that I try to fulfill your will.

Let me trust that you are preparing the way. Let me have willingness to perform any task, under any conditions, that you may require.

Let me willingly go where you would guide me. Let me see your guidance.

(Letter #845)
