Dear God, let me live rightly today. Let me submit to your will. Burn away my own plans, undermine my will. Thwart my desires. Rule me — all that I may live the life you have decreed.

I wish for happiness and good feeling. Let me live a life today of right action, without care for my own thoughts and feelings. This search for happiness is both futile and disloyal. Let me willingly act contrary to my inclinations, submitting to your dictates. Through denial of self, Lord, let me grow into the person you would have me be.

Let me not believe this fiction of self. I am yours. Let me act as such today.

(Letter #1081)
