Dear God, let me be a source of relief and ease for those around me, both with friends, and those who vex me or even see me as an enemy. Where I am frustrated, let me not just inwardly mouth blessings for them but let me demonstrate your love by taking some concrete action in their favor. Let me not pridefully decide who does and does not deserve good will: but let me convey your love to all indiscriminately.

In circumstances of confusion, let me be a calm presence, an eyr of the storm. This is your power made real on this earth: love and ease flowing from one of your children to another.

Lord, grant me the willingness to demonstrate love even when bitter.

Thy will be done.

(Letter #846)
