Dear God, I deny myself nothing. I want more than my share of prestige, of security, of affection. All my instincts bend toward self.
Lord, let me look outward. Let me direct my energies toward fulfilling your instructions, toward bringing your light out into the world.
You give me the gift of energy. Let me use it for the benefit of those around me. Let me find joy in providing for others the very things I crave for myself. Let me increase others’ feelings of security, of respect, of being loved.
Let this be my living prayer to you.
