Dear God, each morning, I pray to you that you might relieve me of self-centered thinking — of the bondage of self. I go on to ask that you take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to others of your power. This implies an obligation on my part. If you remove my troubles, I am to bear witness to others of this glorious release. I must share your power with others.

Too often I remain silent. I feel your work in my life, I experience your grace. How energetically do I share this? Not very. I feel embarrassed to proclaim reliance on you. I feel hesitant to be perceived as needy of spiritual aid.

Yet reliance on your grace is the fundamental fact of my daily existence. Without you, Lord, my soul would wither, I would dry up and blow away. Yet I keep these facts secret.

My Creator, let me share your love with others. Let me bear witness, let my very life bear witness.

Thy will be done.

(Letter #899)
