Dear God, let me quietly, secretly spread peace today. Let everything I may do be unannounced — let me take quiet satisfaction in crafting works that will leave delight in the hearts of others — let me ease others’ pathways — with no attribution or notice.

Spare me, O Lord, from seeking credit. Spare me from my own craven ego. Let me place others’ fame and well-being ahead of my own desires.

(Letter #1088)
