Dear God, let me try. Let me put in a full measure of effort. So often, I profess to desire nearness to you, or the peace of right action and right relations. Yet I do nothing to bring those things about. I idly hope you might visit me and fill me with your presence. I sit apart from the world and my fellows, thinking neutrality to be the same thing as peace.
Lord, let me act. Let me take affirmative steps to embody your will today. Let me engage with my fellows even when I would remain aloof. Let me be industrious in fulfilling my obligations.
Let me be a being in the world today, your being.
