Dear God, strengthen my faith. Lessen my burdens. Weaken my ties to the world. Grant me greater humility.

Today, Lord, let me be willing to act in secret for the good of others. Let me go out of my way to place the spotlight on my brothers and sisters. Let me actively seek those whom I may help, without trying to gain credit for good works.

I have worries about how things will go in a number of areas in daily life. Do I have sufficient resources? Will my loved ones thrive? Will I lose standing professionally? Will my health deteriorate?

O my Lord, let me work all the harder on behalf of others. Let this work be my prayer to you.

Today, let me simply aim to be useful and responsible — an adequate tool of your will. Nothing more.

Lord, I feel your love. Let me deliver it quietly to the world.

Thy will be done.

(Letter #878)
