Dear God, even in the face of challenge, in the face of self-created fear, you offer abundance. It is my task to see it. Lord, let me rely upon you today. At every juncture where I am timid, or falter, let me consciously rely on you.

Too often, my dependence on you is in name only. I may face some trial and, in fear, I mouth the words of prayer. But I do not act on them – instead I set about trying to solve my own problem, on my own and without your assistance.

Lord, what would it be like if I were to truly depend upon you? Let me seek your support with great deliberateness today. Let me not simply cry out, “help me.” Let me stop, and receive your aid.

(Letter #1048)
