Dear God, I am no exception.

The physical world follows a predictable path. Let go the stone, and it drops. Look east, and the sun is rising.

Lord, let my behavior follow the course you have set out for me. If I create conflict, my fellows turn against me. If I judge, I am open to judgment.

You call me to spread light and love, to care for others in greater measure than myself. This is a difficult task. Yet shall I deny you? Neither do the laws of nature nor the laws of spirit spare me.

My good Lord, let me pour forth light. Let me do your bidding, in every small thing.

Let me remember — let me learn anew, moment by moment — that I am not exempt from your requirements, nor am I to be excepted from your love. You shine on me as all others. Let me hold my face to the sun.

Thy will be done today.

(Letter #969)
