Dear God, is one morning more or less important in your sight than another? Surely you love all your children, all the days, in equal measure. Just as with all those ways you saved me in the past, you will do in equal measure today.

Lord, my sweet, dear Lord, visit me personally today. Be with me all throughout the day, my constant companion. My shortcoming is that I see you so infrequently, though I know you to be there. Faced with some challenge, my first thought is to solve it – not to have faith that it will be solved.

Lord, let me have the presence of mind to place faith prior to everything else that unfolds around me. Let me make room for it. Let me make room for you.

Watch over this son of yours, gently guide me when I fail.

(Letter #1089)
