Dear God, how shall I best serve you today? I have plans to be a productive and helpful person. Let me not hold on too tightly to my agenda. Let me seek and hear your guidance throughout the day.

Today, Lord, let me not be smug. When I act as I ought, when I fulfill my obligations, I get such a prideful sense of satisfaction. I want to tell people of my good works, when I am only doing my duty.

Today, Lord, let me labor in secret, doing what I ought for no other reason than that this is what you require of me.

Let me be anonymous, unheralded. Let me seek no attention and avoid the limelight. Let me just be one among many, a worker among workers.

Thy will be done.

(Letter #906)
