Dear God, let me show my faith in you through my actions today. Let me be an obedient employee, a loving partner, a kind friend, a compassionate parent, a graceful leader. Let my sole ambition today be to be useful and responsible. Let this be the song of praise I sing for you.

Worries creep at the periphery of my attention. Jackals, pacing around the firelight. Lord, let my works be bright. Let me be attentive to what is before me, and take comfort in the safety you deliver. If I do your will, I find relief. Out in the shadows are ghosts, with no substance.

Let me act in the here and now.

(Letter #881)
