Dear God, if I am to be a being of love, then let me act as such. Let love grow within me and spread from me to all my fellows. Let me act as a loving soul in every situation.

Lord, show me my highest and best use. Let me not expend my energies on selfish trivia, on inconsequential and childish pursuits. Let me act only as you would have me act. Let every step, every movement, every interaction, be according to your will. Let my every word be one you would have me speak.

Let me build your palace according to your design.

Let me be willing to be the worker you require, O Lord. I am tempted in so many ways to sit idle, to gossip, to complain.

But no. Let my way be one of love.

(Letter #960)
