Dear God, let me not think of myself today. Let me act contrary to my instincts. Where I would protect my position, let me give way. Where I would speak, let me remain silent. Where I would seek credit, let me shine the spotlight on others.

Lord, let me have trust in your guidance. I am so fearful that I must manage the world. Let me accept that such an effort is worse than futile, that it only has the opposite of its intended effect. Let me please have the willingness to hand over all things to your guidance and direction.

Let me seek and do your will today. Grant me knowledge of your will for me, and the willingness and power to carry it out.

(Letter #1078)
