Dear God: Pride and ego. These plague me and underlie almost everything negative in my life.

Today, Lord, let me actively work to counter this shortcoming. When I find myself the center of attention, let me turn the spotlight on another. When I find myself criticized, let me dig to see what I can learn. When I feel invincible, let me recognize that such emotions are fleeting.

Let me become willing to seek humility, and to view myself right -sized. Let me do this without drama and without shying away – without passion.

Let me be a simple worker enacting your will.

(Letter #897)
